non-traditional calendar
explores typographic expressions through the layers of organized chaos found in each ring of dante's inferno illustrated through joseph conrad's novella, heart of darkness. this chaos is represented through contrasting text weights, styles,  scale and axis changes. the months are divided to represent the nine rings of hell and follow a circular, modular grid leading to the center of hell.
each month is comprised of three layers of vellum, and mimics the depths of hell. the concept of an organized mess is achieved through this layering, which provides the reader with legible layouts and a chaotic texture. the first layer are quotes indicating a sin, and the second indicates the punishment. the very last layer shows the actual calendar.
