This Book is the largest in my portfolio and consisted of the most technical and tactile skill. All of the content is screen-printed and hand sewn.
Political theatre was a project conceived and finished right before the result of the 2016 election. It’s content are celebrity endorsements of the two primary candidates emphasizing the theatricality of the whole election. The secondary accordion books within each spread held important seldom issues that played out unnoticed by American media in result of the promotion of the candidates. The juztapoztion of the two topics where placed together to discuss the creditability gap that contemporary media has on public issues.
For the asthetic and construction of this book I wanted to create a tabloid-like publication that was specific enough to be a relic of the time period. Each spread followed the same red, white and blue color scheme with stars relating to the Democratic Party and stripes for the republican.
