Just thought i'd post some concepts im working on for a report. nothing is nailed down just yet, so still working on the grid/typeface/idea.
using Adobe Jenson (Slimbach) OT, apart from Mrs Eaves on the cover. I have a mixture of white and reversed pages, but will need to work out how they work together as the transition is a little 'harsh' at the moment. Its a two colour job so some of the headings are pantone red.
I have proportional old style on in Open Type to get the droped Numbers, will this do anything to the rest of the typeface? I can't see anything different than the numbers droping at the moment.
Using a really spacious A4 page, thought about making it thinner or wider, but thinking about printing cost vs the layout that will be needed in the later sections with tables, they generally need alot more room.
Also went and took some photos, but will need to come up with a strong concept before re-doing the imagery. these are pretty much place holders at the moment, while i work on layout ideas.
There are several levels of heading im still working on, as well as a drop cap intro para (which needs kerning).
