About the book design and execution
Joy's Recipes for Living Younger Longer is a square 8.5 x 8.5 paperback with photographs and color throughout. Nearly every page of the book has been uniquely designed. Of particular note is the repeated interplay of photographs and text. Look at the way the text curves around the grapes on the back cover. Those same grapes appear again on the full title page of the interior.
A pear adorns the usually bland copyright page, while watermelon slices form the backdrop for the epigraph page. The stunning food photography was shot by the fashion photographer, Ron Reeves. The color photographs reproduced sharply in the physical copies of this print-on-demand book.
Eight fonts were used: Commercial Script, Copperplate, Helvetica, Kunstler Script, Optima, Perpetua, Skia, Times New Roman.
