"UNTITLED" by Matt Mullican

book Layout, experimental typography

Expressive typography based on the poem, "Untitled" by Matt Mullican, originally published in "Blasted Allegories," an Anthology of Writings by Contemporary Artists. The poem describes the life of an anonymous woman through a narrative of brief statements. Images in this design are created by layering and arranging various objects and text on a scanner, varying the openness of the lid to create levels of contrast. These images are combined digitally with the body of the poem text.
