Freedom to Typeset

More work for the Humanities Division. A flier with this much copy should probably be printed on something other than 11" x 17", but I think that it turned out alright considering the spacial constraints.

The real challenge, though, was to get the event title to display properly against the background image. After a bit of tinkering, I settled on an x-band pattern to wash out the otherwise dissonant cross-hatching of the original woodcut, a choice that I also think dovetailed neatly with the lecture's multidisciplinary character.

Outlined view showing guides, margins, etc. This took about three hours to make from conception to final product.
