Vik Muniz’s Postcards from Nowhere is a two-volume, slipcased, limited-edition album that pays homage to the quasi-obsolete artifact of the picture postcard. In this series, the viewer is invited to explore their own understanding of the Great Wall of China, the Eiffel Tower, or the Taj Mahal through carefully crafted and transformative collages.
The design treatment references both the typographic and visual elements found on the postcards in the collages. The placement of the title was broken up onto various surfaces of the object to echo all of the bits and pieces that make up the artworks.
