Frontier

A handmade book

For my senior thesis project at George Mason University, I was tasked with creating a book. I developed the concept, researched for content, and designed the book from scratch. I also created a poster and helped create and organize a show and reception to share the work with the surrounding community.

Concept:

I have always found Space to be a fascinating topic, as it has evoked my curiosity and sense of wonder and adventure. I believe that exploring the shared human experience in response to it has turned into a fun, thought provoking, and deeply human book. Looking at human interaction with outer space through history, science, and popular culture, my book is an exploration of exploration, a document of the adventure and wonder of the unknown.
