This 32-page booklet posed many design challenges. The client wanted an ‘antique’ look to the booklet pages, and all typefaces used had to be historically accurate. Many of the images for inclusion in the booklet had come from old newspapers and therefore had a halftone pattern (the dots that make up newspaper print). These images were enhanced to appear as original black & white photos. The back cover image required extensive restoration (see below).
