Visiting Sussex Book

The original book was a small press endeavor put together in 1976 by local historians for the American Bicentennial celebration. I found the book at a Sussex County auction; it’s charming in spite of being outdated.

To practice using the InDesign book feature, I redesigned the piece using the original illustrations along with historical photographs found in public archives, which I converted to duotone. I had in mind the limited budgets of such small town projects and kept the design 2-color with no bleeds.
