The definition of landscape “All visible features of an area of land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal” the area of land chosen is an image, by Martin Parr taken in 1966 in the artificial beach inside the Ocean Dome, Miyazaki, Japan. Parts of Parr is an object that embodies this definition. By cropping every section of this image into each individual page that makes up the book. The gold foil embossing on the front cover of this hard back book are all design choices that attempt to place this information on a pedestal. Elevating this landscape’s “aesthetic appeal”. Green reminds me of landscape. Rolling fields stretched into a format of printed matter
which is wider than it is high.
