STILL WATERS RUN DEEP
Still Waters Run Deep is a set of books that describe the human experience of dreaming in two ways, through personal recollections and academic texts. The first book, Dreams, is a history of dream studies and their neurobiology. The second book, Disorders, details a selection of parasomnias and other sleep disorders, including their symptoms, causes, and methods of treatment.
The academic content of each book is modeled after the aesthetic of vintage science textbooks and encyclopedias, which offer an objective approach to the text. In contrast, the dream recollections respond to the hazy or disjointed feeling of being in a dream or remembering one afterwards. The typography is manipulated to warp and ripple as a dream would. Through each book’s signature structure, alternation of page size and paper type, the cyclical nature of sleep is reflected.
