My Interpretations of a Book <Mechanick Exercises> (2020)

This vintage science textbook cover work is one of the homework from the ‘Library project’ at RISD. I had to choose a book that was written in the 1600s, and interpret it in my own way.

My book was <Mechanick Exercises> by Moxon. It is all about the information of essential skills at that time, such as smithing, printing or building a house. I interpreted this book as an old-school science textbook during my undergraduate. Because when I had to write an essay for an engineering class, I used to refer to the old-school textbook to build an overall structure before actually writing the essay.

Therefore, I represented my interpretation of <Mechanick Exercises> with 10 keywords on the science textbook cover metaphor.
