Apple Nature Study

This Nature Study of an apple relies on digital tools—
mainly Photoshop for image manipulation and layout.

Graphic Concept: a limited palette of colors is used (Green/Yellow Greens; Red-to-Red-Orange; Black (type, esp.) and white
The page layout is quite consistent, but not identical. Most pages have a heading/title block near the top of the page. Usually it is in the same location, and is consistently tall. The title block contrasts in color and value with the background — if the page background is predominantly pale yellow-green, then the heading block is a mid-dark red-orange. If the page background is a mid-dark red-orange, then the heading is pale yellow-green.

Good information is presented about the apple's form, and graphic communication about those features is clear and visual.
The final book was printed, trimmed and bound well.
