Note: Still working on the book, but some things are simply awesome and must be shared.

One of the great things about working on this book project has been the opportunity to immerse myself in the world of print design.  It’s a fascinating and beautiful world, and though web design has improved enormously, the best stuff still happens in print.

While combing examples on Behance, a showcase site for designers and other creatives, I came across a spectacular example of typography.  It’s a medium size pamphlet (about 60 pages in length) that was designed by Steven Acres, an upcoming designer who just graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design.

The book design incorporates a lot of design ideas from the golden era of printing and shows how classical book layout (with a few modern touches), can produce a truly spectacular volume.

(More images can be found on the project page at Behance.)

Though I don’t know the history behind the project, it looks as though the book was produced as part of Mr. Acre’s student portfolio, and for that reason, isn’t available for purchase.  Which is a true pity, this is a book I would love to leaf through and explore.
