I made this book for a project in a letterpress class.  The project was a class book that each person made a section.  The theme was jargon, and for my section I went with nerd jargon.  I wanted to make a nature field guide, like to identify birds but with nerds.  I talked to a few of my nerdy friends and made up categories that they could fit into and some jargon.  Then I drew little stick figure caricatures of each of them in their natural habitats.  I made the drawings into a plate using photopolymer.  I used various hand-set type, that took forever to set up.  I used 8 different fonts including Gill Sans roman for the Nerd title and definition.  I used Bembo and Joanna in different sizes for the rest of the text.  I don't remember what font I used for the title on the front cover. I'm really happy with how it turned out. 



A Field guide to Nerds:  Easily identify and understand what they are talking about
Nerd:Individuals who avidly pursue intellectual activities, technical or scientific endeavors, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interest, rather than engaging in more social or conventional activities.

There is no such thing as regret. There is only a lesson learned.

Lesson learned indeed.
