Taxonomy of Shapes challenges the reader’s perception of their environment and current systems of scientific classification. The book represents elements from both natural and man-made environments with handdrawn icons. Hand-waxed translucent overlays use geometric cut-outs to organize the items according to circle, square and triangle forms. Taxonomy of Shapes introduces a new system of classification in which we find that a mountain is in the same category as a nose, a slice of pie, and a bunch of grapes. Letterpress printed with hand and die cutting in an accordion format.
