I was tasked with typographically and illustratively representing an excerpt of Mark Bartlett's essay "Beyond the Margins of the Page" (Emigre 32).
The phrase alive and well in the margins leapt out at me, and I ran with it. I chose a B-movie, pulp vibe to riff on— because mythological creatures and monsters are alive and well in the margins too. The multilayered, 3-D collage format mirrors how monsters loom large in our minds as kids and then gradually recede from memory.
See how many you can name.
