Typography | Book Design | Book Binding
The Brain Damage Lyric Book is inspired by the song Brain Damage by Pink Floyd. During this project my goal was to create expressive typography that matched the mood and tone of the song. I did this by manually warping the type and images using a scanner. The images featured in my lyric book are found public domain images of a brain, eclipse, moon, and stars that have all been manually and digitally warped. This project was experimental, from the method of type and image alteration to the use of materials like laser-cut acrylic sheets, transparency film, translucent paper, and coptic stitch binding.
