The Holy Bible redesign project was part of typography lesson by Keith.
Holy Bible consists of most complex micro typography in world, we were definitely going to learn a lot throughout this project: From how the paper size affects column of text, spacing for header, contrast between sub-heading and content, caption at page bottom, each small adjustment affects the whole picture. Holy Bible's readers have a high demand on legibility and readability, any disturbances would be easily noticed. Articulating text with small caps? italic? or bold weight? Each function represents different level of articulation. They are all we have to consider for Holy Bible.
My choice of type is special: Big Caslon, FF Meta and Charter. My reason is, Big Caslon's contrast and craftsmanship is perfect for display size, especially the caps. Charter and Meta acts best at low quality printing, they helped my design keep readable. The robust Charter also helps the Holy Bible turns into a modern one. FF Meta's unique letterform still quite legible at caption size, doesn't have any corporate business feeling when goes with Holy Bible's content.
