The typographic rules (for gentlemen only)

Jackson Cook a 22 anni ha già stupito il suo ambiente con un bellissimo libro tipografico dall’ironico titolo di The book of fancy typographic rules for living by (for gentlemen only). Nato come compito per il corso universitario di tipografia, ha preso ispirazione da vecchi poster e dalla tipografia vittoriana.
Un lavoro ben riuscito!

The 22 year old graphic designer Jackson Cook made a wonderful book about typography called The book of fancy typographic rules for living by (for gentlemen only).
In his own words “This book was a project for my Advanced Typography class at SUNY Purchase College. The assignment was to simply create a book about typography, using appropriated text from other sources. The layout and example paragraphs was entirely up to the class to decide for themselves. I decided to draw inspiration from old wanted posters, and victorian typography for my book to create an old western feel to the book. I tried to make the project an exercise in creating as much contrast and color on the page, without actually using any color”.
A good work indeed!
