"Digital books are at a rapid growth and currently make up 20 percent of all books sold to the general public in the US alone. As the digital market is expanding, the need for analogue books is becoming more redundant. The redesign of the prodigious novel Star Maker, by William Olaf Stapledon, first published in 1937, serves as an experiment on highlighting the qualities of a book’s physical existence, some of which cannot be accommodated by an e-book. 

This project is a comprehensive study of paper material, text layout and physical size. The book features various paper goods and weights along with a bookcase containing 16 A5-sized artworks representing a visual interpretation of each chapter, and a square-sized constellation map of the books content.” 

Daniel Siim is a Copenhagen-based designer and a BA graduate from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation. His practice approach a wide scale of graphic design with a focus on printed matter, from small press to major publishing.

A Life Update

Since I posted last:

I left my job as a barista to go on a missions trip with my youth kiddos to a remote First Nations reserve in Northern Ontario. We traveled three days by train across the country, then flew into the community by bush plane. While we were there we partnered with the local church and band council to run a day camp, and we also just made lots of friends, hung out and ate a lot of bannock. It was a real good time.

I’m now back on the West Coast, but in Vancouver this time, working at a boarding school for the rest of the summer. The school is in a castle and I’m basically a prefect so life is good.
