Our Typography II class collaborated with SDSU's English and Comparative Literature
Department on this Poem Broadside project. Our goal was to successfully design a given
poem in a creative and conceptual manner utilizing the broadside format.
This multi-page bounded narrative + specimen book is constructed like a planner to represent
the idea of collections in regards to stationery products. The typesetting used throughout the
entire narrative is Futura, a typeface designed by Paul Renner. All images were taken with a
Canon Rebel T3i digital camera to which they were then process in camera raw, edited on
Adobe Photoshop CS6 and placed in Adobe Indesign CS6. The pages of this book were printed
on 32 lb paper and were cut, hand-folded and adhered with a permanent adhesive to white
faux leather cloth and wrapped with a cover slip.
