The Moon and Stars Can Be Yours is a freewheeling, far-roaming investigation into the contemporary world of spiritualism that began with Duzant’s obsessive collection of psychic fliers on the New York City subway system combined with ephemera from the NYPL Pictures Collection. In an age of increasing uncertainty, the wave of modern mysticism is always present, eagerly waiting to fill the void created by our digital lives. Duzant weaves together research-based writing with anecdotal stories, inviting the reader along for a ritualistic search for meaning, following the path of the Spiritualist and New Age movements.
Magali Duzant’s The Moon and Stars Can Be Yours is playfully designed with holographic foil and neon paper stocks inspired by the fliers found on the subway. Millionaire (Script, Roman and Italic) set together with a grotesk like Neue Helvetica is a beautiful combination: the contrast between both creates a bold, original and contemporary typographic language.
