TYPE 1 / Type Specimen Book / First Layout Mockups
November 14, 2012 nick howland

The first layouts we did for our type specimen book were experimenting with two iterations of two different spreads. I chose to do iterations of the opening spread, which provides the basic information such as the typeface name and the designer, and the “annotation” spread, though I ended up deciding to spread the annotations throughout the entire book. This would help tie it all in together. I also decided on placing the text in one specified place throughout the entire design. My designs can be seen below.
