Title page of memorial book for St. Thomas More.

This 96 page hand-printed, hand-bound book was created as an alternative to a wall plaque in commemorating sponsors and donors for the church's expansion.

The Rialto typeface was used for its beautiful integration of classical bookface letterforms and the marks of calligraphic writing (as well as its fluid ligatures and swash capitals). The book was printed on heavyweight Somerset paper to allow for a noticeable impression of the type, and for its luxurious cotton feel as one turns the pages.
