Typography

Different typefaces were used that belonged to each of the classes created by Maximilien Vox. The challenge was to create different compositions with different typefaces while still maintaining a bold yet efficient design that explains the use of each class.

Cover

The cover of the books uses grid and 3 of the primary colours as it is bold yet fun but still educational and clean.

Spreads

Each spread will have an explanation of the class of the type as well as its use and history. In addition to that, each spread will have  different typographic compositions.

Grids

Grids were used as a way to keep the explanatory texts aligned and create a coherence between the pages even though each typeface and composition is different.
