This assignment was to design a book the was set up with a modular grid layout. The booklet had to incorporate two relating texts, the first being the traditional text from our traditional book and the second being a modern text. The two texts that I incorporated were Patrick Henry’s Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death! speech and Frank Zappa’s Statement to Congress of 1984. Titled In Defense of the Offensive, the primary text is the Zappa text. The Henry text is incorporated as annotations that emphasize and reflect the similarity between the problems being addressed by these men. Pull quotes are located on the left hand side of the spread while the annotations are located on the right hand side. The typographic differences between a sans serif for the modern text and a serif italic for the traditional text visually emphasize the differences in the time period of each writing.
