The Poetry of History Book Design

Design of a book about the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, focusing on a poem written about the event by Yeats.

The content was a transcription of a discussion on BBC Radio 4 by five speakers. Each time they speak, each speaker starts from a different gridline on the page. Tracing paper was used as the book’s main material to show this grid more clearly, and to show the buildup of conversation and repeating of words throughout the text.

This was an ISTD Student Brief in which I was awarded a membership with Merit.
