Ella Minnow Pea Book Design Winner

I designed the book with a postage theme since the novel is entirely made of letters between Ella Minnow Pea and her friends. I laid out the type of every page meticulously to avoid widows and orphans. I printed the pages, created the book cover from scratch, and bounded the pages for the Bookbuilders West Scholarship (I won! :D)

I fell in love with typography because of this project. It probably helped that I won a scholarship from it. 

Printed, and created the book cover. Printed cover design with a toner printer to easily wipe off the ink for a vintage look.

Created an envelope to add to the "postage theme"

Every chapter of the book begins with the pangram "“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” to show what letters are banned from the fictional island Nollop.

A lot of letters from the alphabet are being banned in the book!
