Banishing Orientalism

Phil Chan

“Through a thoughtful examination of ballet history, peppered with touching personal anecdotes, witty humor, and candid—but never judgmental—observations, Banishing Orientalism provides a look at how classical ballets that have historically relied on Orientalism can be reimagined beyond harmful tropes. Banishing Orientalism is a glimpse into a more equitable future for the quickly diversifying world of ballet, making this an essential read for anyone invested in the art form.” —Pointe Magazine

Our publication design for Phil Chan’s book Banishing Orientalism incorporates a combination of storytelling illustration, dynamic typography, and historic photography.
