A Typographic Morphology Study
This was a book I created in an upper level typography class in the Graphic Design department at UW-Milwaukee. The book chronicles the exploration of typographic skills that were learned over the course of the class.

The copy used is Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities. The theme of the book is the growth and expansion of a metropolitan city.

Title page.
Table of Contents, printed on vellum with design showing through from back pages.
Chapter divider, keeping with the theme of expansion and growth Chapter One begins with the city plan of a small town, and progresses though Chapter Eight where the city has expanded and broken past its limits.
Process dividers: the book serves as documentation of a learning experience. Each chapter begins with the final spreads of a chapter from Invisible Cities highlighting a specific typographic style. Following these spreads is the progression I took to get to the creation of the final spreads. These vellum Process Dividers serve as a separation between final outcome and process.
Closing spread, last pages of the book.
