As the final project for the course “Art of the Printed Word,” we were tasked with printing and binding our own book. Seeing that it was near the end of a decade, I wanted to document the music that I found impactful and defined the past 10 years. Using the Jonathan Edwards printing press and Yale Printing & Publishing Services, I produced 10 disc-shaped leaflets bound in a jewel case, each telling the story of one album.
Problem But, afterall, it was printed in an edition of five, with one sent to the Special Collections at Yale. How would I bring permanence and lasting impact to the project?
Solution Build a React app to showcase the 10 albums and let the book live on the internet, forever.
