The Circles of Our Reasons

For my Typography II final project, I selected works from writer and poet Wendell Berry and arranged them into a small sampler book. I decided to focus on the theme of the cyclical nature of life in his work, so the book has a continuous, wordless narrative that accompanies the selected works. The narrative can be read spread by spread or with the book completely laid out. The story is also completely cyclical; the story is about a mother raising her daughter, and when the mother passes away, the daughter learns to live for herself and eventually brings new life into the world, starting the cycle again.
