Yale Literary Magazine

Publication design

November 2022

I was commissioned to design the Fall 2022 edition of the Yale Literary Magazine, the oldest student literary magazine in the US. 

Drawing from stories about family, travel, and displacement, the book design plays with film, memory, and light.

Reflective foil embossed cover & title page,
inspired by aging film reels

Artworks were printed on custom perforated paper so readers could remove them and put them on their walls 

Page colors transition from black to warm violets and reds, and back to black
