I am out of the office until 12/4/79.
Please feel free to contact me, and I'll get back to you upon my return.
I had an opportunity to help lay out two books for Art of Manliness.1 Both took a pocket guide format, styled to a particular theme and era.
The Pocket Guide to Action
The first included a series of individual meditations, and was to be designed in the style of a WWII field manual. Which is a fairly dense, workmanlike, masculine, and old-fashioned look.
The Strenuous Life Handbook
The second was a collection of goals for personal growth, presented as merit badges to be earned by completing certain tasks.
I have a real fondness for the typography and layout styles of the past, so it was a real joy to be a part of this project project.
