Type specimen book – Carnival Faces

Carnival faces






Type specimen book

For this project, I made a type specimen book showcasing five typefaces that I love to use (Bodoni, Univers, Didot, Gotham and Futura) and wrapped it in the style of a carnival theme. The book is 15.625″ x 11.75″ and custom stitched by hand. There were several challenges with this project because of the many things that had to happen to make it come together. Huge thanks to my beautiful family and friends who gave their time and support to make this happen. I am so pleased with how this turned out.
