COME AUGUST, COME FREEDOM by Gigi Amateau

Interior design for young-adult historical novel


COME AUGUST, COME FREEDOM was an especially complicated interior since the historical novel had many different levels of text. The author included multiple original sources which needed to be redesigned to fit the format while still echoing the time period. By styling these pages after newspaper clippings and other printed pieces, I was able design layouts with enough variety and interest to echo the original sources without being distracting.
