This handbound book focuses on the history and evolution of the spectacles, or as we know them today, eyeglasses. Being a glasses wearer myself, I thought it only appropriate to learn about the device that helps me function on a daily basis. Aside from covering history, I also wanted to highlight Warby Parker, one of the leading online glasses retailers, and explore how they have changed today's glasses industry.
A special component of this book are the clear acrylic covers for the front and back. I utilized UF's Fabrication Lab to laser cut the holes for binding and engrave a pair of glasses on the front cover, then adding a paint infill for the final touch.
