3rd Year Final Major Project
The cover is a hand-made cloth bound hard cover, featuring a letterpressed title. The main title Untold is printed in white ink, whereas the subtitle Five tales and their secret pasts is embossed - a link to the hidden content within the book. It was all completely hand bound by myself, something which I thought would be crucial for me to be able to get all of the pages working as I needed them to. Each tale features a custom hand-drawn title page, and each one uses its own unique method of concealing its accompanying information. The tales also have decorative drop-caps that were adapted from Minion Pro Bold Caps, to match the body copy. There are also two independent contents pages within the same page - one for each part of the book.
A big part of this project is the tactile nature of the book - the mechanics of the pages; switching between the regular section of the book and the concealed section. Originally I thought that this would be hard to convey over the internet, but I thought that if I made a video of the book in action, showing each method and interaction that it would go some way to doing it justice. You can find this below, as well as some photos of the book.
