The publication unpicks the history of how denim has developed over the past 100+ years. The different eras and styles denim has been used for. How denim is made and the unsustainable effects that it has on our planet. 

The publication design reflects the content, to demonstrate how the fabric of denim has been developed throughout time. I have used elements of the fabric within the design including, the use of denim fabric for the cover, shearing scissors to cut some of  the page edges, brown book binding thread and laser engraved chapter headings to give the book a dynamic feel of denim. Using these hand-crafted methods in the book makes it feel more exclusive. The combination of craft and digital software allows it to have a professional clean cut design with an authentic feel.

The information is gathered from books, news articles, online research and from personal resources. Denim has existed over lifetimes and within that adapted to different aspects. Denim in itself will continue to develop in future times. 

The publication was shortlisted for the student book category at the British Book Design and Production awards.
