Professional Book Design
Print book design for the hardcover edition of Barleycorn, by Harold Auckridge. These books were beautifully printed on premium stock. They’re truly a treasure to hold in your hand.
Chapter 1 of Barleycorn hardcover.
Another chapter page. Note that the decorative icon under the chapter number is drawn from the figure inside the dropcap.
An unusual feature in this novel was the presence of sporadic interjections by the characters in the story.
Page numbering with flourishes to complement the overall book aesthetic.
The essential consistent alignment of paragraph lines.
I also designed an ebook version of Barleycorn.
