During this process, the printed pages on this stock are quite damaged by the stitch binding. This could have been solved by not placing the full bleed images in the center pages of the signature.
Also, a more acid and bright tone of yellow for the cover, not so orange, would have conveyed more criticalism and less charmness. But at the same time, the design was aiming to be friendly in the tone of voice.
In order to stick to that ‘protest’ style, the cover could have been designed using a stencil and spray on it. This would have given a graffiti look to it, which is also related to protest. Unfortunately, this idea arrives late, as the earliest lasercut induction available is the 9th of November, days after the deadline.
(Add Nick's FB + filling typeface with colour)
The quotes make the book flow, but more quotes would have worked better (at least 4, 1 between each signature to make the book flow more). One of the 2 existing quotes is misplaced. It was supposed to fall between the first and the second signature, but a mistake in inDesgin made that happen.
Case bound would have been a better choice instead of a book that needs to lay flat, as it is not intended to be a coffee table book and holding it is problematic.
Screenprint works very well.
Spine is a bit too thick.
The book is charmign
Purpose achieved, balance between humor and being critical
Very good size justification
