Complex Texts/Reading Classics

Reading Classics is an imaginary series of annotated classics aimed at the general reader in the mainstream paperback market. The task of the project was to propose a series design, including format, text and cover design that works to solidify the books as a coherent collection.

Other objectives include discovering typographic conventions for academic and annotated texts; to discover approaches to series identity through series design; to discover efficient formatting techniques; to transform the texts supplied into a coherent series design and to make an efficient InDesign template for the series.
