This book began with a novel approach: the Typography Class imagined a major character and were asked to each write various physical and emotional attributes of that character. As individual stories were written about her, with no preconceived sequence, our character’s personality became clear and evolved further. The stories played off each other as they were arranged, revised, and rearranged multiple times until the class became satisfied with the arc of the coalesced narrative. Playful pop-ups lighten the serious mood and display our character’s maturing personality, while the play of colors enlivens the page.
