 This book is an accordion-bound photo journal about fire escapes. The book takes the reader on a visual journey, progressing in color and chaos. As the words get more and more difficult to read, the reader may experience the frantic feeling of escaping a fire before returning to clarity at the end of the book, and thus successfully leaving the fire.  The accordion style of this book is meant to evoke the stair-step shape of fire escapes. The text used in this book was found on the Wikipedia page "Fire escape" as of November 2015. The typeface used is Courier.  The book was created in 2015 for Yale course Art 132 Intro Graphic Design, taught by Critic Yeju Choi.
