Wow, it’s been a whole year since I’ve posted. At least I have something to show for it.
Last semester in my History of the Book in Theory and Practice course at Auburn we learned everything from how to tell which country a book was printed in by its font to the methods of using InDesign to create a quality artifact. Needless to say, I was in heaven from August to December. For the second half of the semester, my group chose three 19th century texts from Special Collections in Auburn University’s Library (two cookbooks and one etiquette book) and made a modern printed edition. The picture above is a photo of the printed copy, and below you can find the complete digital copy in PDF format. Although it’s not side-by-side pages, you can still get a feel for it. We had a wonderful time creating this from start to finish, and I truly can’t wait for the opportunity to do this again!
Thanks to my fellow group members: Jordan Hays, Beth Lingerfelt, Anna Parsons, and Savannah Downey
And to my professors that made this possible: Dr. Emily Friedman and Dr. Derek Ross
