Die Zauberflote, A Typographic Opera in Two Acts
Book, Spring 2004
Published, Art Center College of Design, Archetype Press

This is a student collaborative book. The typographic treatment highlights Pamina reflecting her circumstances. The mirrored concept of the playing card motif represents Pamina’s dialogue with her subconscious. The script and red color convey her sensitivity and love for Tamino, and the sharp serif font and black diamond shaped ornaments signify her logical, but dark side. The two passages can be read four different ways.
