Classical Book

This was a project in which I was given three short stories by David Sedaris to be typeset in the classical style. As a designer, I felt that I had to interpret the underlying theme of the three stories, and select the order of the stories to convey the theme: the degradation of innocence. I wanted the illustrations and typefaces to match Sedaris' whimsical yet serious (in the chosen stories) writing style. The title of the book references an song lyric that deals with the same theme.
