Gail Godwin keynote booklet

In 2018, Asheville historian and author Rob Neufeld wrote a booklet to accompany author Gail Godwin’s keynote speech at that year’s Carolina Mountains Literary Festival. I designed and published (with InDesign) the 32-page booklet given out as a memento to attendees.

Rob Neufeld’s essay was a celebration of Gail Godwin’s life’s work. In a sad parallel, my design is inadvertently a celebration of Rob’s life, as he passed shortly after this final speaking appearance. He was a joy to work with, and I fondly recall our discussions about font choices, wherein he rightly noticed the presentational techniques I was using to steer him towards my favorites.

I don’t have the right to reproduce Rob’s essay, but I hope I’m within rights to share just a few sample pages from the designed publication.
