Matter is unpredictable and, as proven by scientists to this day, transmutable. It is this flexibility in form that I set out to mimic in slicing both the type and imagery. The typefaces I chose, Perpetua and DIN Pro, both have strong, objective qualities that resemble matter as seen in this book. Perpetua, a transitional serif typeface, speaks to both the historical discoveries about matter and the newer ones. The modernity of the sans serif typeface DIN Pro easily tells of the forward-thinking attitude of scientists looking to learn about matter and, in doing so, to turn over the belief that matter is unadaptable, unchangeable, unbreakable.
