The task for this project was writing and designing a book based on a famous designer or a design concept. Hand lettering is a concept that has been shaped by rich history and interesting people. Words are the main way that we as humans communicate with one another, and the way words are visually formed can further communicate the feeling and meaning behind them.

The content of the book dives deep into the history of the first written languages, and goes all the way to current hand letters. Many design choices within this project were made to reflect the content of the book. For example, a classical style grid was used throughout the pages to emphasize the fascinating history.

One of the takeaways from this project was learning how to manage an entire book project including research, writing, editing, and designing. Through this, a general concept got turned into a physical object for others to learn from and enjoy.
