#Treason is an artistic expressive type book comparing the reputations of Marie Antoinette and Kim Kardashian. Both women have lived luxurious lives from a young age, and both have been worshipped and despised for their beauty and wealth. The book is a typographical collage of Marie Antoinette’s final letter before her execution, and cruel tweets about Kim Kardashian.
The color palette references the rococo movement that occurred during Antoinette’s life. The book gradually becomes darker as it progresses, representing the decline of public approval during her reign. The French letterforms in the book are chopped by tweets to reference Antoinette’s beheading. The tweets gradually get more aggressive as the book progresses.
