Meet the Soviet Leadership

Role: Visual Design, Layout, Copy-writing, Research, Bookbinding

I have a weird affinity for Soviet history. For my self-defined senior project, I designed a book that would introduce the Soviet Union’s head honchos. I carefully researched my eight subjects, then wrote all of the copy. The final product was hand-bound with assistance from the ever-patient Joe Dicey, Carnegie Mellon’s resident book binding guru.
