Interior design and typesetting of a memoir
Written by Rabbi Levi Welton, Be like the Moon memoir is an uplifting coming-of-age story of his life and his religious community, covering variety of subjects with a powerful lesson of heroism in each chapter.
Combining the name and the coming-of-age aspect, we used the phases of the moon to represent each chapter, slowly filling through the book until the full moon. The illustrations are done in a style that complements the style of the cover and the empty pages are decorated with a pattern inspired by synagogue decorations.
The biggest challenge for the typesetting was finding a good balance of the body and the footnotes to ensure a comfortable reading experience.
