Portfolio: Byzantine Dream

Copyright 2007 Jessica Wood
This is a book that I created about the Byzantine (early Christian) art movement. It is an accordion book that opens and closes just like the musical instrument the design is based upon. I chose to create a book about Byzantine art because I find the history and culture quite fascinating. I also love ancient icons. Religious art from all backgrounds always carries a powerful mood, evoking many feelings of wonder and curiousity in me. I updated the Byzantine style with many modern elements, such as contour line drawings and some fancy modern fonts. I love to combine cutting edge design with traditional art.
