Caves of Oregon Book Design

Recently a caving legend passed away before he had a chance to complete his life-long journey of writing his book "Caves of Oregon." Kim Luper asked me to help him complete the book for Charlie Larson. Here is my original concept design. The goal here was function mostly. It has easy-to-read tabs and carts. The words and information are very compact to fit in as much as possible and the design has to be black and white. Kim loves it but we are considering using one of Charlie's photos for the cover. Right now I am waiting for Kim to help me organize the content before I move on with the design. The image is intentionally blurred because sensitive information about caves are contained in the book. We are considering making the book only available to a select number of people or creating an alternate version with reduced information to protect the caves. Stay tuned for the next update!
