"A Charmed Life" was written by James Melville and adapted for my senior year project. Over a year and a half, 15 illustrations were created digitally with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, then the text was laid in InDesign. The completed pages were printed on transparencies and imposed manually onto photo-sensitive aluminum plates. The plates were printed using traditional lithographic methods, 15 copies per page. The final pages were then folded, punched, sewn and bound into a final edition of 12 books.
