First off, I love this book and I love Chip Kidd! He seems like such a cool guy and the book is such a fun one to flip through. Kidd presents the material in such a fun and colorful way that while I am reading it, I don't feel like I am avidly learning but I am.

Here are the three photos I took from around campus:

I like this poster for the Eileen Myles reading. I love the repetition of the face in different colors. Since the left side is colorful and busy the left is minimal and lets everyone know the vital information.

academic success center
I am often walking to the Poole and Agriculture building for work and I love the area around the Academic Success Center. It is wet and gloomy in this picture but I especially love the tree in the center of the circle by the bus stop. I just love how centered the tree is in the circle (being a bit OCD). It is such a simple thing, a circle with a tree but its simplicity is amazing especially when the tree has leaves. It gives the place amazing color.

Campus Looks A Lot Like A Book

Something that attracted me to Clemson University was definitely the old buildings as well as the historical feel to campus. That being said, when I looked through my pictures of campus I saw many that reminded me of books, and the idea of books.
The first image of the statue of the soldier (I may have photobombed and linked arms with him) reminds me of old war books, which have covers of heroic soldiers in their uniforms walking to save the American people. This reminds me of an entire genre of book- war books.

This design I found on a large note pad done by a student. I just found it very interesting to see what students doodle while in class so I believed this design was worth sharing.

This is a beautiful homemade valentines card. I love the obvious time it took the person to sew on the lace and cut out glitter hearts. They even have glued on velvet roses with gold writing. I believed this design was very pretty.
