Identity of Internet
This project was my final submission for Core 2: Typography Studio during Spring 2022 semester. The prompt of this project was to use reading from the Spring 2022 semester and make it in a book with minimum page 50 pages. We also had to print the book and perfect bound it ourselves in the Parsons Design Lab.
Ideation
The idea was to compile reading about the internet which portray its good sides and bad sides. I also did the vinyl cutter orientation and decided to add a sticker sheet in my book. I also wanted to use cream paper to add a somewhat vintage touch and at the same time use a modern sans-serif typeface.

Since the internet is a touchy subject for many, with many people defending its use and at the same time, many people attacking it. I wanted the cover to resemble "camouflage" as the internet can very conveniently blend its identity.

Execution
The cover of the book is made of a single tabloid sized thick paper with lightgreen cover. The book primarily uses Paralucent typeface with a proper and rigid grid system. The book also consists of a stickersheet which I made using the vinyl cutters and has Internet Archive stickers.

The book has three main chapters with section dividers and uses single-column, one-column, and three-column grid. The book was printed, hand-cut, and hand-made in the Parsons Design Lab. The book has almost 85 pages and is perfect bound. This book consists of a cover, half-title page, full-title page, colophon, section divider, spine, and index.
