An Experimental Typography Book
I love trains so I did this book on trains (a part of it is on miniature model making also). We were free to pick any interest. I've always loved to see trains going over bridges and this became part of the text design where subtitles bridged gaps between main title and paragraph body. Text heavy pages were balanced with full spread photos. Photos and bodies of text are embedded and nestled within each other, sometimes hanging off each other. Captions are like pockets of interesting detail strewn throughout the page. Type itself was Century Schoolbook, a typeface that closely resembled the typeface used on railroads. Details such as hand kerning and leading gave a tighter feel within each page. Repeated, rhythmic, vertical lines mimic rail ties and dot random pages bringing the eye across.
Since this was an experimental book focused on the content, currently there is no cover page design.
