#Treason

# Treason

#Treason is an artistic expressive type book comparing the reputations of Marie Antoinette and Kim Kardashian. Both women lived luxurious lives from a young age. Both were worshipped and despised for their beauty and wealth. The book uses two forms of text: Marie Antoinette’s final letter before her execution, and tweets about Kim Kardashian.

The color palette is inspired by the rococo movement, which occurred during Marie Antoinette's life. The book gradually becomes darker as it progresses, representing her gradual decline. The letterforms are chopped by cruel tweets to reference Antoinette's beheading. The tweets gradually get more aggressive as the book progresses.
