3. Snap, Snap, Sizzle Library

Snap, Snap, Sizzle Library increases access to books on design and pedagogy that diversify the canon by including a constellation of perspectives. It started as a partnership with Más Libritos, a Latina-owned, intersectional feminist independent bookstore centering the stories of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities. 

Typeface: The Neue Black by Vocal Type.

This project expanded the design library at the University of Arkansas’ School of Art’s graphic design program, and helped the library depart from its white male focused design literature to include more diverse point of views on design. 

This project was named after Sara Ahmed’s definitions of snap and sizzle in her book, the Feminist Killjoy Handbook. “When it snaps, it catches your attention. You might hear the snap as the start of something. A snap is only the start of something because of what you did not notice [...] A snap is a moment with history. [...] A sizzle, another kind of snap, the sound of electricity: snap, snap, sizzle.”
