Assignment: Bill of Rights

In this assignment the students were given the text of the Bill of Rights. They had to pick a set of two amendments and reset the type. This week we talked about paragraph details: flush left, flush right, justified, centered, etc. We also talked about paragraph indents and drop caps and “ornaments” or dingbats. The typefaces we focused on this week were Baskerville and Caslon. The students chose one of these typefaces and reset portions of the Bill of Rights using the above tools plus what we talked about last week which was point size, leading, kerning and tracking. Below are the beautiful results!
