Starting to Frame – a memoir

I was thrilled to work with Roger Gordon on his memoir, Starting To Frame.
Roger tackled many important issues in this work, including mental illness, and I am proud to have played a small part.

Roger provided all the images for the cover, and we worked together to create this design. Legibility was a top priority for Roger, who has a family member with a vision impairment.

One of the challenges of the front cover artwork was the digital removal of another person in the ‘present day’ photo. Luckily, Roger had two shots to work with.

For the interior of the printed book, Roger chose to start with a pre-designed interior and make some changes, again to maximize legibility for his readers.

For the e-book versions, we applied the KISS principle, prepping the manuscript for conversion (through Smashwords and Kindle) with Microsoft Word.
