the regulations
For my Senior Thesis Project, I translated the New York Knicks fandom into a religion, defined by a sacred text. I composed the book by intertwining verses from religious texts with player quotes, opinions and prayers gathered from fans on various online, and my own recollections of the team. To create the imagery, I drew heavily from religious imagery and illuminated manuscripts. The 'First Half' of the book contained the "rules" of the religion, an explanation of several concepts, and ways to worship. The 'Second Half' was composed of the stories of the "Saints." This half was printed on gold cardstock, explaining the team's history through historic players.
