The brief was to develop the book design and production of Perth’s Presbyterian Ladies’ College (PLC)centenary book, written by author and journalist, Susan Maushart. The design of this book should break the norms of school history books, be brave bold and modern.
We worked closely with the client, UWA Publishing, and the author to bring this beautifully rich (and at times very amusing) history to life. Although this book has a fairly formal structure in terms of its 11 chapters, every page engages the viewer with different standout images, stories and factoids. The spirit of camaraderie, innovation and achievement are strong elements throughout the book in line with PLC’s 100 year history.
Scope: Book design and production of 416pp quarter bound with tartan marker ribbon. The typeface used throughoiut the book is Laski Slab, designed by Paula Mastrangelo and Ramiro Espinoza and released with ReType in 2014.
