BOUNDARIES: HOW THE MASON-DIXON LINE SETTLED A FAMILY FEUD AND DIVIDED A NATION

INTERIOR & JACKET DESIGN FOR MIDDLE-GRADE NONFICTION TITLE I designed both the jacket and interior for BOUNDARIES, a nonfiction book illustrated with archival photographs. Overall, it required a lot of design input and attention to detail to ensure the complicated technical content was accessible to a middle-grade audience. The interior text had multiple levels of information which varied in length throughout the book and required a consistent yet fluid design approach. The pacing of archival photographs was very important to the story and the commissioned maps needed extensive art direction to ensure accuracy. By creating a digital collage on the jacket, I was able to show depth and complexity, despite most of the available imagery being flat scans of original documents and journals. The result is something cohesive and compelling that is reflective of the incredible and intricate story inside.
