Quilt Book Type System

Description: I was asked to create a long-form book layout with several chapters focused on a form of Art using only black and white images and a limited amount of colors in order to focus on the typography and layout. 

 

Concept: I chose to create a book about quiltmaking. I curated and organized all the content of the book, including text and images. I created a custom grid that would showcase the content. To help the book flow well, I decided to talk about the history
of quilting and then showcase modern versions of an historic pattern as projects that readers could make. As a design element throughout the book, I used patterns that emulated the shapes often found in quilts. All of the design elements throughout the book were chosen to strengthen the concept of quiltmaking.
