5.5" x 8.5" book for Typography III

A book combining three pieces of writing all focused on the theme of censorship. The excerpts span a history of censorship, from the burning of Kurt Vonnegut’s novel, Slaughterhouse-Five, to the events in Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451,  to the detrimental impact of the 2015 Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris. Mindy brought these three stories together to show both sides of censorship—the authors and the oppressors—and illustrate the devastating results it can have. The book has to be partially destructed to be read, mirroring the action of destroying ideas and lives through censorship.
