The Order of Books

By Roger Chartier

The Order of Books was written by Roger Chartier in 1992. The book looks at different systems used to regulate the world of writing between the Middle Ages and the 18th Century as there was an increasing amount of text. I’ve taken only a handful of text and extended it across 8 pages done in an accordion style booklet.



This book uses only typography and elements like lines, dots, and shapes to create various dynamic layouts that play well with the text and the negative space. I created contrast through the weight of the typeface as well as using outlines and a dark grey to go against the lighter blue. I also wanted the overall feel to be soft so I used curves and took advantage of the light blue and outlines of the text.
