A set of books set using lyrics by Beyoncé and photos of my mom and two sisters.
This project won an AIGA365 Design Excellence Award for book design and Judge's Choice Award selected by Richard Turley.
Book 1: Save The Hero
This book is dedicated to my mom: a woman who is, at times, impossibly independent. It's a celebration and reflection of her life, marriage, and divorce.
Book 2: Girl
I have two sisters: Laura and Larissa. Laura is four years older than me and Larissa is ten years younger. They continue to shape they way I think no big and small ways.
How the books were made
The books are set in Serifa Std and Univers LT Std and printed on 70C Dur-O-Tone Aged Newsprint French Paper on a Canon Pro9000 inkjet. The books were saddle-stitched together. Photography is a collection of old family photos and new photography taken specifically for the books. Lyrics are from music by Beyoncé and Destiny's Child.
