I designed this book to showcase typeface selections, type setting and page layout. After iterations of drafts, the final piece was printed and bound in hard copy.
The contents of this book consists of 4 extracts written by design writers; Ellen Lupton, David Frej, Josef Muller-Brockmann, and Beatrice Warde. Each piece has been carefully laid out to represent the authors’ extract around the theme of typography and layout.
Please note this book was created as part of a university assessment project.
"I played on the notion of type being a modern piece of fine art."

"I used the grid system to order and set out the type ."
Extract by Josef Muller-Brockmann
"I re-ordered the letters to highlight the importance of legibility & readability in design."
Extract by Ellen Lupton
"I wanted readers to interact with the page rather than just read words.
Extract by David Frej and Katherine McCoy
