Stanford University Comparative Literature Poster Series

morla_design_stanford_university_comparative_literature_posterJennifer Morla was asked to create a poster series for Stanford University’s Department of Comparative Literature. The challenge involved creating a series where the first poster introduced the whole lecture series while subsequent posters allude to future lectures. Poster imagery depicts six stacked books, with the trimmed signatures facing outward. As each lecture is announced, the corresponding poster shows the book with the spine facing front which illustratively depicts not only the content of the lecture, but references the previous lectures as well. This piece is part of the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art | SFMoMA. morla_design_stanford02_72
