Initial Observation:
Finding shapes and textures in nature. Playing with type forms and relating each letter to something wild. Combining nature and design with textures of Alaska was the starting point for this book design.

Final Destination:
Each page was meticulously constructed with handcrafted experimental type forms created in nature. Dirt was placed over ice, trees over mountains, bear prints over mud and moss to evoke the emotion of each state. The study on texture started at the macro level of mountains and sky and moved down to the microscopic visual perspective.
