Design a booklet that integrates various text and imagery components while utilizing a consistent grid on a specific given page format. Research your chosen topic and use that material as copy.
Since my booklet was made to inform the viewer on letterpress, I wanted to bring a rough and gritty feel to my layouts. I did this by venturing down to the letterpress studio we have here at Kent State, and picked up some old letterpress samples. I scanned in these images, bumped up the contrast and used them as backdrops for my spreads. This created a more authentic feel and it helped contribute to the gritty nature of letterpress.
