3.3 Developing content: tree talk

Choose some song lyrics or a line of a poem and typeset it to reflect the music or tone of the content. Attempt this task by working with digital or hand-rendered typography. Now find a physical way to extend your thinking, for example by using real materials or processes in place of your typography or as a filter to add to it.

For this I will take another poem from Through the Looking Glass and experiment with hand-rendered typography and materials – building on my experimentation with materials and type for Book Design 1 ‘ A to Z from Armageddon’.
