Two Versions of One Diagonal Spread
This is the second spread in the book. It's informational in which it tells the history of the typeface and shows a little diagramming. I felt it was fitting for the trademark letterform to go with the history. So as the viewer reads how Baskerville was influenced by calligraphy, the imagery is also showing that. Also in the second version, I pulled the date out of the body text to add another element to that layout. (a response to the analog critique). I'm more attracted the the first version because of it's minimalism and emphasis on the tail. I hope to use this layout style throughout the book.
