'Served' with the latest creative finds by The Cool Hunter earlier today, I was presented with the GORGEOUS typography book created by Jackson Cook.
The type inset goes like so:
This book was a project for my Advanced Typography class at SUNY Purchase College. The assignment was to simply create a book about typography, using appropriated text from other sources. The layout and example paragraphs was entirely up to the class to decide for themselves. I decided to draw inspiration from old wanted posters, and victorian typography for my book to create an old western feel to the book. I tried to make the project an exercise in creating as much contrast and color on the page, without actually using any color.
Isn't it funky? Tres cool.
