The objective of this project was to design and print a 12-page book using only type, that incorporates a literary quote from Molly Bloom’s Soliloquy in the novel Ulysses by James Joyce. The cover and back of my book was created with a live hinge I designed and executed with a laser cuter. I also created typographic roses that are used for both end pages and surrounding paragraphs.
Within the text, I explored the character’s context by emphasizing the word “yes”, as her validating herself with this word was an important part of the passage. Additionally, with no punctuation used in my literary quote, I was challenged with arranging the text of the paragraphs in a way that read well and showed the characters conscious thoughts.
