Workin' 9 to 5 : Two-Ways

Writer, director, actress Rashida Jones explores the juxtaposition between public interpretation of her clean, tailored style and her embrace of the classic style as a reflection of her quirky and geeky identity in the T Magazine article, Workin' 9 to 5. These two hand-bound books embody each of these personalities with her article text. There's an assumption of her personality being boring, restrained, and uptight, confined by the minimal and dry aesthetic of "office wear." On the other hand, there's her lifelong attraction to these strong silhouettes that is tied to her interests and personal style. As a pair, the books share similar systems and the same content, but they evoke completely opposed voices in their typographic styles.
