Type Specimen Book

This project is to make a type specimen book using a poem. I chose ‘Oh Captain My Captain’ written by Walt Whitman. I considered the poem’s historical background to choose a typeface. I chose Janson typeface. Since the poem is very serious and conservative, I decided to have an old book concept. I designed all spreads inspired by old book interiors. Also, the poem is about patriotism, I chose red and blue for a color palette.
