Typeset in Druk, Shatter, and GT Sectra on various papers using poetry by Pablo Neruda and images from RISD Picture Collections.
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.
