A B1 sized publication, exploring the ancient solitude of the Solar System’s Planets. Though the planets are icons of modern astronomical discovery, they have existed longer than us. This publication acts as an experience of lonely wandering and the oddity of stumbling upon the grandiosity of a planet, in the vast darkness of space. In order to establish the publication’s atmosphere, I utilised traditional gouache paintings to represent the planets’ ancient nature and poems (by my friend, Rania Putri) and to convey the musings of planets’ solitude. A sense of loneliness was further established through the number of illustrations available for each planet, to illustrate a lack of exploration. Each feature on a planet reveals a cutout and a concertina fold out.
