Streeting Design

Newcity Lit 50

Newcity’s 2018 Lit 50 issue features fifty of the most influential people in Chicago’s literary scene, including writers, editors, and publishers. For the design of the cover and feature stories, I looked at the physical elements of the printing and publishing process, so the layout incorporates newsprint textures, ink smudges, scanned sandpapered text, and letters that I printed using traditional wood type at the Hamilton Wood Type Museum. Articles edited by Toni Nealie, with photography by Monica Kass Rogers.
