Abstract

How does one bring new life and meaning to old, forgotten things? I plan on doing this by creating a book that combines the dusty, boring parts of history and facts with the fun and exciting parts of life. Those who read this book will learn about artifacts of South and Central America. Full color illustrations showcase what artifacts would have looked like in use, during the time and place that they were created. This will teach people about the rich cultures that surround these everyday items. Along with the in-use illustrations, there will be black and white technical drawings and a written history for each artifact included. With this project, I want to delve into the world of people that are not like me, learning the ins and outs of what their lives were like in order to better understand and relate to them. And once I've done that, I want to share it with everyone else.
