My book is intended to be a discursive deep dive into singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe’s third studio album, ‘Dirty Computer.’ By synthesizing direct quotes from Monáe with select lyrics from the album itself, the book conveys the album’s major themes and helps enhance the overall listening experience. The book is formatted as a ‘deluxe’ record sleeve of sorts, with pages preceding the physical vinyl itself.

Aesthetically, I wanted viewers to feel like they were looking at the inside of a computer motherboard. The graphics, modular grid choice, and type choices all work in harmony to achieve this goal.
