Typographic poster for Charles Baudelaire's prose poem Windows, taken from Le Spleen de Paris (Paris Spleen).
The poem discusses the contrast between explicit reality revealed from open windows and the ambiguous nature of life drawn from closed windows. The narrator favours the latter for its openness to interpretation, and prefers to live his life vicariously through his imagined stories of others. The title of the poem Windows serves as a typographic framework for this duality, and invites a grid-based exploration of the narrator’s observational journey and self-reflection.
