A conceptual art book created and fabricated by hand. Dodecahedron structure contains 12 magnetic faces that each hold a mini book.

The 12 mini books highlight each of the earths climate zones while containing open-sourced photos of the unique flora, fauna, and landscape. Project is meant to capture a moment and serve as a time-capsule so to speak. 

Books are set in Bell-Centennial type, the font used in late telephone books—it is designed specifically to be read at a very small size.
