A PALE BLUE DOT:
The concept of the design was to depict the contrast between the technical, scientific explanations verses the introspective, contemplative voice that Carl Sagan utilizes in the first chapter of his book, “A Pale Blue Dot.” This contrast was illustrated through shifts in typography, syntax, page structure, and negative space. This book discusses Voyager I’s photo taken of Earth in 1990, which depicted Earth from the farthest away Earth had ever been seen at. His book discusses the technicalities of such an endeavor, the technology, the human power needed, and the implications of understanding how “small” we are in the universe.
