Women in Kent booklet

View extract 7 of 54 pages (0.7MB PDF)

Brief

Collate all of the document images supplied from Kent’s archive collection with the transcripts and introduction text into a readable and attractive a4 booklet. Needs to be designed for an audience that will buy it.

 

Rationale

I decided on double page spreads for each woman and to work everything else around that. This meant I had to make sure each woman started on a left-hand page. As the document is quite text heavy, I decided I needed to break up the text somehow. I picked an element of a piece of clipart scroll work and then chose an interesting piece of the relevant text to use as a pull quote.

 

The cover images are various images from inside the book put together. On the front I also added some colour to one of the ladies. On the back the background has a slight texture to look like one of those mats you often see on old writing desks.

 

Production

A limited amount of these books were produced. It has a thick matt colour cover and black print only on the internal pages. More info and how to buy this book can be found on KCC’s website.
