HOW TO HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT
5.5 x 8.5 IN. / EDITION OF 8
Book Design. Letterpress. Typography.
This letterpressed how-to manual physically exemplifies its concept: how to hide in plain sight. The book plays hide-and-seek with its reader as the pages reveal multiple instructions concealed within a single typeset composition. The phrases quickly fade back into obscurity as the book culminates in a page presenting the text block in which all of the phrases are present, yet hiding again in plain sight.
