Chimera Vol.

Creative Director


Each of the 1,000 copies of Chimera Volume XIV is unique. Volume XIV is the most ambitious volume, and the first to have every cover screen printed, and numbered by hand.
The book team chose Julie Mehretu's Stadia II piece as inspiration and to symbolize, in visual terms, the state of mind between the birth of an idea and the final work of art. With an additive approach, we utilized elements from her piece accordingly, allowing each spread in the journal to be its own specific song in the mixtape that is Chimera Volume XIV.
