The Best of Nest Book Design

I assisted in the interior book design and production of The Best of Nest by Todd Oldham, a 300+ page book celebrating the best of Nest magazine, published by Phaidon Press.

The book is a compilation of spreads, pages, and stories copied and pasted directly from Nest magazine, with the addition of a special commentary section by the creator, Joseph Holtzman. I worked on translating pages precisely from the magazine into the book, which included recreating and reconstructing diecuts, patterns, and certain special effects. The body of the book stays true to the original graphics from the magazine with the only extra design elements being page numbers and issue numbers. I additionally designed and laid out the table of contents, the end pages and credits, the front introduction essay by Todd Oldham, the commentary by Joseph Holtzman, and the additional essays section. The book cover was designed by Zander Schlacter.
