A Poet Once Said…
- Art Direction
An oversize typographic and illustrated book (11in x 15in) illuminating an influential quote from the 1964 Feynman Lectures on Physics by Richard P. Feynman.
The book includes an intro, outro, and detailed footnotes that further explain the scientific content, philosophical meaning, and life/work of R. P. Feynman.

The book was printed in an edition of 50 and hand-stamped with each edition number. The project was featured on It’s Okay To Be Smart and It’s Nice That and sold to Feynman enthusiasts around the world.
The book is paced through lyrical typography, graphic illustration, and hand-painted spreads. The mix of type, vector, and texture is meant to illustrate the objective but inherently human approach to Feynman’s life and work.
As well, footnotes add context and background to Feynman’s text while an introduction and conclusion reiterate the significance of his outlook and approach.
