Charlotte's Web

book design & construction

This limited edition copy of Charlotte's Web by E.B. White was designed and hand crafted completely by my two hands! The book includes 140 pages with hand-illustrated chapter openings and meticulous long-document design considerations. The signatures were hand-sewn and glued to form a book block, then cased into the book board, which was also created by hand. I wanted to create an earthy look for this book, with a classic, yet, whimsical feel. The book was submitted with an in-depth specification booklet regarding the target audience, design decisions and type specifications. My favorite part of the book is the chapter openings, where I illustrated a time-laspe of Charlotte gradually spinning her web until it is complete in the final chapter.

Design considerations include: book cover selection and construction; endsheet selection; interior pages design; typeface selection; headband selection; and complete hard cover book construction.
