This chapter was helpful because it strongly relates to what I'm doing in my museum brochure. Under each piece of art I'm using the story as captions and I'm planning on ragging the type right. "ragged right" I'm also using symmetry in the painting side of my accordion. Im using true symmetry because I want it to be like a museum wall. Using colored type wasn't something I thought about until I read this chapter. I'm going to experiment with that.
The major idea from chapter 2 that I'm going to use in my museum project is white space.
White space is very common in museums, and it gives that clean, sophisticated feel. I'm also going to use repetition with the paintings on each "wall" or section of the according fold. The consistency of paintings on the museum wall will make it appear as a a museum wall.
Using the grid in my project will be very helpful with making the paintings on my even and give them hierarchy over the type. I'll also use it for the cover and back to align my cover frame and type. Type-size will be important so it doesn't dominate my wall art.
