Font classification - typography book

Typography's final project was creating a font book following the fonts classifications. My goal was to make a solid layout which can be used for any upcoming page - I also did not want to overdo the design part due my font book should be more about the fonts itself and not about the decorations - I want to say thank you to my Typography teacher Brenda Bezell. She ended up teaching me the love for good typography and how good a well designed font looks on the page or on the screen. She also was able to bring the importance on how the spaces between letters mean as much as the letters themselves. This font book, containing around 90 pages, will help me for future projects choosing the right fonts. I love how something as basic as choosing the right font can turn a dry document to a work of art.
