<h2>The Crystal Goblet</h2>

A typesetting exercise in which I set Beatrice Warde's 1955 typography essay "The Crystal Goblet" for a magazine-style layout. No images were to be used, so I ended up using using the type in some illustrative ways: the pull quote on page 3 fading away before it can finish, the gutter on page 6 acting as an actual crystal goblet using negative space. You could argue, if you really wanted to, that these are the kind of decorative frills the essay is actually railing against, but I think the austere use of colour and layout uphold the ideas of simplicity and functionality Warde is trying to put forward

Cover page

pages 2/3

Pages 4/5 - I didn't want uniform columns of text filling the whole page, which is why the negative space on page 5 mirrors that on page 4

Pages 6/7 - This is an older college project, so I'll be honest and say something more interesting could have been done with page 7
