Literary Mash-Up

A handmade book typographically comparing the texts of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and poetry of Allen Ginsberg.

A compilation book combining the texts of L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and selected poetry of Allen Ginsberg, The Identity of Value compares these two works as quintessential American tales of the pursuit of self-worth. Using Buttermilk by Jessica Hische and ITC Franklin Gothic, I weaved together the two books into a singular object using Japanese stab binding.
