- Cover and interior design
Memento has no signatures; instead, it is an accordion folded book. The entirety of the book can be unfolded and layed out as one long strip of paper. Other components include:
- French Paper Co. Speckletone: Madero Beach
- Brown, textured end-pages
- 26 illustrations
Type & Palette
The illustrations and imagery used in Memento are inspired by woodblock prints. I wanted to keep the imagery rough without looking too distressed. I referenced various vintage and antique items, but I didn't want any individual item to resemble a letterform too closely.
While the format and dimensions of the book stayed fairly consistent throughout the project, the original concept was more complex. Even the illustrations were intended to have more detail, and I also considered photography. A more detailed account of these decisions can be found in the process book.PROCESS BOOK
