Poetry Matchbook

This book features poems and song lyrics concentrated around a singular theme: fire. Using the theme as inspiration, I chose to present the book as a matchbook. Scaled five times larger than the size of a standard matchbook, it also includes a staple and sandpaper striker. Materials used included candle wax for the matchtips and a wire hanger for the staple. This book also includes a CD insert.

This sketch contains both the draft for the fire icon and the measurements (good thing I remember how to use my fractions!).
