Here is the class template for today’s work.
Text on a Path
Using the path tool in InDesign and some of the lyrics from your favorite song, construct a multi-page composition for your type book. This needs to be at least four pages, and you should use the typefaces you choose and the structure of the lines you draw to support and emphasize the meaning of the words. Remember that the pages form a larger whole, so the text should flow from one page to another.
Be aware of spacing between words and letters, and pay attention to the mix of typefaces: a good thing to do is to make sure they all have a similar x-height, even if that means you have to use different sizes of type on the same line.
Using the class template (found on the class website and in the class dropbox):
- Columns 1-4: Use this area as your main composition area.
- Column 5: The label should read Text on a Path and then list the group and song title.
You may use fonts the Lost Type Coop or Font Squirrel as you see fit.
