PICTO POETRY | 2013
Print, Iconography, Typography, Bookmaking, Lasercutting
A book made of over 25+ custom made pictograms inspired by studying the history of Isotypes by Otto Neurath.
The book is 3 poems told 90% visually via pictograms, and 10% words.
The goal was to aim for the “universal language” of visual images, form as language
I wanted to make the viewer think, but simple enough to not give up
A Legend in case you get stuck ;)
In the back lays 3 trays of lasercut blocks, so that you can take a paper and etch
pictograms from the book encouraging the user to make their own picto-poems.
Every pictogram in the book lasercut on acrylic
Feel free to view the book slideshow below to see each pictogram:
