Design | Photography | Layout
The competition had asked to celebrate a Dead Wood Archive that lives in a Learning Resource Centre close to me. The project must utilise the Dewey Decimal System to locate a book. The Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), or Deway Decimal System, is a proprietary library classification system first publish in the United Sates by Melvil Dewey in 1876.
It has been revised and expanded through 23 major editions, the latest issued in 2011, and has grown from a four-page pamphlet in 1876 with fewer than 1,00 classes to a four volume set.
Use your date of birth to generate a personal Dewey number. For example, if you were born on
7 January 1996. Your date of birth is 070196 which translates to 070.196.
Inspired from the book Spook- Seience tackles the afterlife, I will be creating twelve chapters and interpreted the afterlife in chinese origin. This typography book was one of the outcome which
uses the actual joss paper to add a sense of touch and sight to define the meaning of that particular joss paper used.
