Publication, Editorial Design
A speculative yearbook typeset in full stops coming from four different languages. Sourced from Jennifer Billock’s “Why Do People Sign Yearbooks?”, this micro publication introduces how yearbook signatures evolve over years ever since the birth of first yearbook back in 1914 at East St. Louis High. Earlier ones are mostly hand-written, sourced from poems and scrapbooks; later they are largely replaced by acronyms inspired by text messages. Back cover with initials of everyone in the class designed with ideographic full stops.
