Interpreting Garamonds Lehrmeister
The historic roman tells the story of Garamond and his way to create his typeface.
In this project, the task is to handle continuous text, to interpret the text in a new way.
Every student is creating the cover, the intro and one whole chapter.

Challenges appeared in forms of how to treat the continuous text, how to handle accentuations.
A roman contains much text, ordered into chapters.
Even it is a historic roman about the type face Garamond, which is a serif type, I decided to use a sans-serif typeface to underline a modern interpretation of that historic story.
 
Whenever text is part of a project, it has to be readable and to calm the eye of the reader.
The cover showes the underlying grid of the roman.
