Published by O'Hara Township in April 2008, this 292-page book is the biggest project I've worked on to date. I typeset and laid out every page as well as wrote most of the text. I also chaired the committee for this book and supervised the research, writing submissions, proofreading, and editing from other committee members. It took over twelve years off mostly off-hour work to complete. Books can be ordered from our printer/bindery, Mechling Bookbindery at this link...

Above is the full-color dustjacket front cover. The illustration is by primitive artist John Kane who between 1928 and 1930 did a painting series of this area in the township. The original painting can be found in the Museum of Modern Art.

Also shown are single pages and two-page spreads of the two-color interior design. This book has just over 500 illustrations.
