"... the widow carries the orphan on her back, unrelated by blood, bound together by fate."
The Widow and the Orphan is a zine about typographic widows and orphans. Based on a romanticised narrative that stems from the semantics, the zine explores how widows and orphans disrupt reading (and design) processes.
The zine attempts to recreate the disruption of flow in the reading process by introducing inserts held by slits cut into the pages. Photographer Christopher Olszewski was commissioned for a series of photographs that explores the idea of disruption in images.
