Studies On Precipitation is a collaborative book project based on decontextualizing found imagery. Archival photos of research on cloud formations and weather patterns inspired a process of layering through illustration, photography, and text resulting in an abstracted narrative.
This collaboration between two bookmakers, a photographer and an illustrator, emerged via intuitive conversations around aesthetics, mood, and play which then informed the overall process of illustration and design. These conversations found a balance between absurd beauty and the practicalities of craftsmanship.
There are no rules to break, one can simply float.
