The North American Lighthouse Cookbook Project

Project Date: Spring 2019
Class: Typography II: Layout
Requirements: Cover, Chapter Header, Section Header, Menu Page, and two Recipe Pages

In this project, we were required to put all of our typography and layout skills to use in order to pull off such a complicated piece. We could use images and illustrations from the internet, but I chose to create custom food and lighthouse-themed illustrations for use throughout the book, accompanying food and location-specific photography.

The cover illustration depicts Boston Lighthouse, a location covered in the book.
