At some point I decided I was going to write a book and that book
became Recipe for Disaster, over 70 pages of dry humor and insane
ramblings about ways to kill yourself. I also provided the
illustrations throughout the work in a messy ink pen manner. As much
fun as that is, it also needed to be designed.
The book is a
small five inches by 9 inches, and Recipe for Disaster’s layout uses a
simple red color field to frame the story. The book is divided into 4
sections, each using a large photograph to set up the section. The
interior of that places the chapter title in the color field at the
start of the chapter, and at the end of each chapter is the
“ingredients list” for said disasters in its own special box. The work
makes use of the colors red, white, and pink for its captions, color
fields, and titles. A color field at the top of the page allows the
viewer to quickly note what kid of page he or she is on.
