History of the Rock Beat - A Timeline Project

The two books showcased in this section are both entitled "History of the Rock Beat." Each book uses the same text but different images to communicate the same timeline which can also be considered the history of rock n' roll music. The book which showcase a postmodern grid system uses a system known as point-line-plane as a methodology for creating its grid system. The result is much more organic than the book which displays traditional modern grid system which is known for its classic rectangular grid system.This book also features representational images while the postmodern grid system version features more expressive imagery.
