Typography Text Book
Typography Textbook:
Brother Norwood's Book of Fancy
Typographic Rules For Living By
(For Gentlemen Only)

This book was a project for my Advanced Typography class at SUNY Purchase College. The assignment was to simply create a book about typography, using appropriated text from other sources. The layout and example paragraphs was entirely up to the class to decide for themselves. I decided to draw inspiration from old wanted posters, and victorian typography for my book to create an old western feel to the book. I tried to make the project an exercise in creating as much contrast and color on the page, without actually using any color. Based on the popularity this book has experienced on the internet, I decided to re-shoot it and show much more detail than I did in the previous photos.
