This Pākehā Life: an unsettled memoir

Book internal system and cover for this memoir from award-winning author and academic Alison Jones.

The cover features a fabulous painting by Sara Langdon of Maungakiekie in Auckland, with its pā terraces visible. The title type is set in Rufina – a stencil to nod towards a settler vernacular – balanced in its own unsettled terracing. The internals also use Rufina and Domaine. This may be the first time I've designed something entirely with serif fonts!
