Earlier this week, my department went to a lunch and had a tour of this amazing place, The Mansion on O Street, and while there I happened upon this amazing Algebra book (among other things: like hidden doors and a bathroom with a chess table set up inside of it!)
While I am not ready to tackle one of the pages with amazing typography, I did feel ready to play with one of the end pages — full of problem-solving. This particular page happens to be very sturdy, so it will hold up to having a lot of holes put into it. I’ve also been longing to put together organic embroidery stitching and geometric stitching into one piece. I find it helpful to take photos of my pieces as I go along when I only sort of have a direction. It’s easier for me to look at a piece in its entirety in a photo than in person for some reason. Here’s a look at how it progressed.
This piece in particular doesn’t quite feel done just yet, but I’m sleeping on it for now.
