Penguin Composition Rules Book Design

A book that celebrates the composition rules that designer Jan Tschichold set when he was employed by Penguin Books in 1947.

For this book, I took old, classic Penguin paperbacks, dissected them, and laid them inside the spreads of the main book to demonstrate mistakes that had been made prior to the rules.

Rules and their corresponding mistakes are highlighted in the same colour within each spread.
