Quarantine Books

This is a series of imaginary books I created during quarantine lockdown.

 

These books don’t exist but they reflect well what most of us were / are thinking during quarantine. They would’ve been great reads during confinement. Each book holds a poem in its title. I edited and illustrated the editorial design on photos taken with my iPad at home.

 

Nobody knows what to do during a world pandemic. It’s unknown territory.

 

I created the Quarantine Books as pieces of editorial design and visual poetry to express what I was thinking or feeling. They represent the books I wish I had had in hand to read and find answers for the unknown.

 

I made this series using the books I had in my bookshelf to photoshop the titles out, create visually pleasing photos  (with my iPad) that dialogued with the color scheme and concept. This helped exteriorise my thoughts and be calmer by remembering a lot of us were going through the same emotions.
