Scissors exploration book


Scissors exploration book

Graduate Print Project, Pratt Institute


This handmade book explores various representations of scissors through compositions, collage, die cut, pattern and embossing.


Context & Considerations

The objective of this project was to create an identity based upon an assigned word—in this case "scissors"—and develop a handmade book with various representations of the identity. The book includes black/white and color compositions, collage, die cut, pattern, hand embossing, and a process booklet. The cover features a cutout of the identity, covered with book cloth to create a raised surface.
