A Season in Hell Reissue

This project stemmed from the idea of wanting to alter the viewer’s perception and prior knowledge on what a book is. This required me to think about the opposition in bookmaking—thinking about the deconstruction of a book or rather components of a book that can exist outside of normal book conventions. I focused on a reprint of Arthur Rimbaud’s A Season in Hell and how he had attempted to burn all his copies of the poem, not wanting anyone to read it. Printed on a set of transparency sheets and encased in a 5-sided acrylic bounding box—furthering the idea of not wanting to be easily read or consumed.
