Work carried out: page design and make-up
A richly illustrated examination of food in the Bible, concentrating on the social aspects of eating, this book deals with twenty episodes which are frequently chosen as subjects by artists, from early mosaics and wallpaintings through to glorious old masters.
The large format facilitated a generous layout. Classic art requires a similarly classic typeface, in this case Adobe Garamond Pro, while details in Myriad Pro add a modern note; chapter titles and subheadings in Centaur provide continuity with the front cover.
