I Want to Design this Exhibit: Banned Books Week

While scooting through downtown yesterday I saw these great big graphics on the side of the the DC Public Library on G Street. Good job on being eye catching. I like the red blocks—they make me think of classified documents and Sharpied memos.

As the graphics had so successfully caught my attention, I was saddened to learn that I have missed Banned Books Week 2014 (September 21–27) and all of its associated events. But I have enjoyed designing a little temporary exhibit in my mind…books to flip through, excerpts printed large (I imagine someone reading one and saying, “really?! Charlotte’s Web??”), discussion about First Amendment rights and censorship…. Yeah. Next year?
