This Is Not Religion
Though far from traditional, I wanted elements of this book to feel familiar and play off its concept. So for each story, I chose a title that highlighted the story of the person telling it. Each section was color coded and descended in height from section to section, much like tabs that can be found on traditional Bibles.
Say It With Style
I wanted this book to be engaging make use of typography in an expressive way. Because all of these stories are filled with such powerful quotes, I meticulously went through each interview with a highlighter and picked out the best ones. Then, using the color schemes to match the section, brought in pull quotes for emphasis.
Notes and Doodles
Another thing that was important to me was to be able to have my own voice throughout the narrative. Think of me as the guide. I lead the reader through the story by highlighting, underlining, and taking notes to give a little extra insight or enthusiasm to what’s happening. Ocassionally, I add in my own illustrations at dynamic moments. I hadn’t worked with illustration much at this point so that was one of my favorite parts!
