Typography Book

A book designed to emphasize the selected story through a single typeface, with a detailed concept driving the arrangement of words and paragraphs. I chose an excerpt from Margaret Mitchell’s classic Gone with the Wind, and used negative space in my book to represent Scarlett O’Hara’s vanity, especially when her pride completely disappears as she exclaims “Yes, I will!” in response to Rhett Butler’s offer to dance. I designed this 16-page book using Baskerville as the only typeface, giving it a stately feel.
