This American Life Booklet

In the Fall of 2016, I began a project to create a 100-page book based on an episode of This American Life: Episode 178 Superheroes. Throughout the episode, the idealistic fantasy of being a superhuman seemingly fails, and each person's story ends in disappointment. 
 
I created rules and guidelines for my spreads based on the stories. Here is the process I used to create the spreads: The text from the episode was used in its’ entirety for compositional pieces. All of the text was first composed physically (e.g., print, cut, paste or drawn) then scanned and processed. All of the colors had to fit into the limited palette. All of the images had to be found within categories that were previously chosen (e.g., interviews, VHS movies, cellphone photography, etc.).
