Banned Books


About  -
'Banned Books' was a brief set by the ISTD which asked to create a chapter from a banned or censored book in a digital format.

The original text of 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' was cenored up until 2011. Deemed offensive for its homosexual content, I explore two version of the 7th chapter with both censored and uncensored editions.

The censored and uncensored texts vary in graphic treatment. From the lewd  illustrative type of the uncensored text reminiscent of Victorian play bills, to the dandified high society typography of the censored edition.

This project was mocked up for an ipad format and demonstrates the typographic treatments in their animated states.
