This project is driven by an inquiry into system design through the development of a series. For my series, I chose to delve into designing hard bound book covers and accompanying dust jackets based off of an existing series of books that were published by LIFE magazine, entitled Science Library. These informative books are intended to educate the reader on scientific concepts in an easy to grasp manner. I decided to focus on three topics-Giant Molecules, Sound & Hearing, and Planets.
The dust jacket is laser cut with circular modules as the circle is used in the basic scientific representations of the structure of giant molecules, in the movement of sound and in the rotation of planets. Circles are omnipresent in representations of the natural sciences. They also reveal the underlying screen printed hard bound cover.
