CARDINAL PÖLÄTÜO

Visual interpretation of the novel “Cardinal Pölätüo” by Stefan Themerson, writer, poet and typographer. Inspired by conditional design methodology and from semantic poetry i decomposed the text and i designed a new layout in which every “voice” or “character” of the novel has a specific position, font-size and style on the page. The unexpected patterns emerging from blocks of texts express the deep meaning of the novel, the attempt to explain the abstract with logic.
