Visiting Sussex, Portfolio Update

While visiting family in Sussex County, Delaware, I attended an auction. Some of it was indoors where furniture and housewares were displayed, and china laid out on tables for viewing. There were folding chairs to sit on and an auctioneer at a podium on a stage. Outside there were more things being auctioned off: farm implements, garden tools, and mixed up boxes of things you might find in a basement. Among all the treasures, I saw a book, Visiting Sussex: Even If You Live Here. It’s a charming little small press project, obviously made with love by local historians with a lot to share about the area’s history.

Since I wished to add a piece to my portfolio using Adobe InDesign, to help in my job search, I made scans of the pages of Visiting Sussex and redesigned it using the Book feature. My own labor of love.

As a portfolio piece and to practice using InDesign’s book feature, I redesigned this small press book put together by local historians for the American Bicentennial celebration.
