Happiness Costs Money

Money Costs Happiness   
This publication is an exploration in two narratives—happiness costs money & money gives you happiness. I started this project purely researching money & it’s cultural significance. The relationship with money and happiness is known around the world in different forms.

This book showcases interviews I conducted asking people what gives them happiness. I plotted each answer on a scale of FREE—EXPENSIVE. The gradient on the book is a bar chart showcasing the 20+ answers I received. The secondary narrative is the research linking happiness & money and is threaded through the interviews. The format of the publication lends itself to the inseparable relationship of money & happiness.
