Text & Texture

This book was an exercise in Typography. Attention was given to font family, size, leading and how text is laid out on the page via single and multi column paragraphs, with and without justified text.

I took this book as an opportunity to see what a professionally printed, print on demand, book would look like. I enjoy documenting my work and would someday like to have a timeline of my life in book form. I see this project as version alpha, 0.1, from which more will come.

It also serves as an excuse to use many of my own fractal renders, which can be seen on all introduction pages and the cover.
