Consider the Lobster 

2022
These editions of Consider The Lobster uses David Foster Wallace’s essay to explore ideas of incorporating unconventionally long footnotes into print. The two editions explore different ways to depict this, one in an efficient and legible form, and one that is not concerned with legibility. The efficient design is a saddle stitch booklet containing two separate parts, one for the text and one for the footnotes. This concept was created as the footnotes seemed to be a story of its own, and allows the reader the option to read the text and footnotes together or separately. The experimental edition is riso printed and binded using lobster clasps. This concept explores the idea of having the footnotes be the main idea, as the author often reveals inner thoughts through them.
