Tales from an Old Hill
An illustrated novel inspired by a classic Ballet from Oskar Schlemmer
The starting point of this work was the piece of music “Das Triadisches Ballett” by Oskar Schlemmer. The design of the book has been inspired by the atmosphere and the feeling created by the choreography. All the graphical and typographical elements of the book aim to transmit the impression that listening to that music has aroused in me. The binding is handmade and it consists of a single long strip of paper folded into various pages. The content is a short novel that was written inspired by the dance and original digital illustration has been made as well to accompany the tale. The project has been made during the class of Typography A in the Science of Design department at Musashino Art University in Tokyo.
