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.
