I got some feedback on the initial drafts of this book design a while ago, but it is nearing completion now.
At the last minute I decided to get and try out a new typeface that I really love. My first typeface is Arno Pro and the second is Feijoa. I am not sure which works best in this context.
I would also welcome any other criticism on layout, leading, anything really. This is a piece of university coursework, which I have to submit as part of the degree. I will, of course, include anything that I learn and use and reference my sources. I say this to be clear that I am trying to learn, rather than get something for free. I have done a lot of reading and research, but as this is the first time I have designed a book, I would welcome opinions. For example I have used ligatures in the poem itself, but am not sure if they are too much here, especially opposite the calligraphy.
Both of my pdfs have a couple of blank pages at the beginning and they are not completely finished yet
