Complex Texts/Reading Classics

MA Book Design Project
Hand stitched booklet

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.
