The Place of Birth



This publication was the hardest to write for and I am a little uncertain as to why that is. Could it be that this is a series rather than a book by itself? Or maybe each of the books is slightly different so judging them as a whole is trickier. Or perhaps I am just indifferent towards it. It couldn’t be, because I do like it. It’s a weird book for it looks messy at first, but that seems to be intentional. You then notice that there is a system to it and you get a clear idea what the design is aiming for. This playful book tries different things that at first seem a little off. But as you look through more pages while taking in the whole series you begin to appreciate it more and more. There is a lot of energy on the spreads and in part that is a result from the typography. There are several typefaces used in multiple ways and it works. A fresh feel to a book after seeing so many others.
