Photography and book design
It’s been a long time in the making, but I recently finished the design for my book of photos which is entitled Hong Kong – Photography by Joseph Pike.
It is perhaps self-evident from the title what the book is about – it’s a collection of my photographs taken in Hong Kong on multiple trips over a 14 year period.
The project involved scanning slides and negatives from the pre-digital era and editing these and digital images using Lightroom and Photoshop. I found choosing the photos to print a really difficult process, but finally whittled the book down to 120 pages.
The actual layout, completed in inDesign, was relatively straight forward by comparison and completed quickly.
