Book design is a combination of organizational vigilance and repetitive portraiture, particularly when the subject is the natural sciences. To be successful in the marketplace and reflect the expertise of the author, self-published books must be professionally designed. For this project, we positioned images of honey bees and hives logically and strategically with the corresponding text. Format and typestyles were selected to make the mysterious life of bees accessible and engaging to readers, encouraging healthy beekeeping practices. This project allowed us to merge our extensive experience in publishing, love of graphic design, and passion for gardens and apiaries.
The Observation Hive Book is available here.
