Dusted is an editorial publication about drag. In the book, four Philadelphia drag queens are interviewed by me about why they do drag, how they started, and what their lives are like outside of the drag world.
Each queen possesses different styles and techniques on how they do drag. For the design, I kept it minimal and clean — showing off the photography and letting the typography complement it. The columns of interview text are kept thin so the reader can see the back-and-forth conversation easily.
Throughout the chapters, there are photo sequences of the queens transforming into their drag personas. Step by step, you can see their make-up techniques, the expressions in their faces change, and how it all comes down to the final look and performance.
