We researched various book sizes and formats, and agreed on a standard sized case bound book with a dust jacket. Unfortunately, as the final copy and images became available, lockdown struck. With Mr Goodson being an older gentlemen, our upmost concern was for his wellbeing. With some careful planning, along with heavily orchestrated collections, we were able to begin work in earnest.
We wanted the book to feel authentic, so proposed a number of typefaces and book covers to Mr Goodson. One of which incorporated his family crest, which he was immediately drawn to.
Chronicling his life from 1934, we understood that this was going to be a substantial book, so we designed an initial chapter of the autobiography to ensure the client was happy before we proceeded to the full layout.
