    A book displaying the elements of text typography.
    Published:
Sweet Type 
An Irresistible guide to typographic confections.
This book was created for Warren Lehrer’s Advanced Typography class at SUNY Purchase College. 
The assignment was to create a book about typography, using appropriated text from alternate sources. 
Selection of a theme was optional, and I decided to draw inspiration from sweets. In choosing a theme, 
I wanted to besure that all additional elements, were all very purposeful, and helped the readers better comprehend what the text was talking about. I created a variety of hand made confections and photo-
graphed them. I also was oddly enough able to find many associations with text typography that went 
along with this theme. I decided to package the book as if it was a sweet treat itself! I placed it in a cello-
phane bag and tied a ribbon around it.
