Graphic Design // @cosmic_novas

This untitled book is an experiment in "ergodic literature". Ergodic literature is defined as literature that requires nontrivial effort on the part of the reader to "traverse" the text. The narrative is jumbled, layered, obscured, encrypted, and woven throughout this novella. This book is constructed from pieces of the sketch books I carried with me during my time as a graphic design student. Also on exhibit are two "scrapbooks” filled with test prints, sketches, and photographs that did not make it into the final version of the book. I invite you to write and draw in the booklet titled "Write in here!!!"
