Through Assembling (choice) Bits
Book Design

A curation of poems and other texts curated by Alice Savage, presented as a hand-bound textural image investigation.

Through unconventional typesetting, the collection invites the reader to engage with the texts more fully, as part of a visual narrative. Experimenting with layout provides new possibilities of reading and interpretation, allowing for intimate experiences with texts that may traditionally be considered inaccessible.

Collected over the course of the year, the texts acted as a method of self-care for the curator during a period of difficulty. The exposed spine acts as a physical representation of her desire for open engagement with the archive.
