Nontraditional Book

  • West Point Market
  • The prompt for this project was to take a trip and tell the story of that trip in a nontraditional form. My trip was to West Point Market's gourmet chocolate department in Akron.

    My book took the form of pirouette wafers. Conceptually I liked how the wafers were crunchy on the outside and filled with chocolate on the inside. That became the theme of my story, "Sweeter on the Inside". I found that West Point Market doesn't seem like much from the outside but once I went in and got to know some of the employees my experience became more personal and in a cheesy way "sweeter".

    The book is chocolate scented and inside the gold foil bag in the center are 15 real pirouettes for the reader to munch on while they read my story.
