A major exhibition of the State Library of Victoria’s extraordinary collections.
Encompassing everything from Egyptology to Frankenstein, Alice in Wonderland to ancient scripts, World of the Book required a strong and systematic typographic identity system. The design is based on 45 page-like elements which work as a navigational system throughout the five parts of the exhibition. The silhouette of the design powerfully echoes the circular dome galleries in which the exhibition is held.
