About This Project

Highlight illustrations, significant passages, and equations within the book, Summa De Arithmetica, for viewers and potential clients.

The Summa is a book that includes groundbreaking work by Pacioli and Leonardo Di Vinci. Vinyl, a large glass case, and large fabric banners were chosen to add significance to the book and the passages within it. The dark red walls created a somber quiet atmosphere for the viewing experience. The material of the fabric banners added a delicate touch and hung loosely to enhance the ancient aspect of the book. An infographic timeline was used to intuitively display significant highlights within the book.
