ABOUT 



→ During seven years as a graphic design student, I've been completed moved and passionated about publishing design. From the very beginning, I felt an urge to shape all kinds of printed objects. And so, as I was carrying my love for editorial materials, I eventually ended up writing a thesis dealing about the analogy between the shape of books and psychology by highlighting order and disorder as key concepts of the reflexion. 

Through "En Découdre avec Le Livre", I analyze how codices are at the same time a symbolic, ordinal and open forms. Both simple and multiple, the codex represents everything about the main idea of the book's shape, through its twenty-one transformation centuries.
As transcendental objects, books were able to prevail themselves through the rise of Christianism by becoming promotional objects, then stabilized through the ages and crystalized into the shape we all know about. Resulting from our evolution since Renaissance, I then explained how we eventually witnessed more appropriations of the codex form since its democratization. Such causal connection between humans and objects then led me to develop perspectives about our own behaviors and ability to internalize order and disorder, as well as a certain image of ourselves, while reading, handling and shaping books. Thus, I tried to imagine how today's designer tends to access to a book's experience that is not simply functional, but also take account of the extreme symbolic, psychologic and complex power of this artefact.
