Student Narrative

This book is an exploration of Pablo Neruda's poem Oda a la Tipografía (Ode to Typography). Experimental type treatments are paired with imagery inspired by Neruda's many metaphors to create a cinematic experience for the viewer. An English translation of the poem accompanies each stanza, though it is typeset traditionally to represent aspects of the poem that are lost in translation.
