Along the Silk Road—Book Design

There are flashes of startling beauty along the Silk Road—the golden glow of a sunset illuminating the cliffs of Bamian, Afghanistan; the languid movements of a Uighur dancer; the sheen of an Ushak carpet; the lush green of tea fields above the coast of the Caspian Sea.

Along the Silk Road is a 172-page full-color display book and traveling exhibit that grew out of desire to draw back the curtain obscuring the peoples of the region and their rich cultures. It features the work of 12 photographers and 7 writers. I was the project coordinator, managing editor, and designer. I was responsible for the photo selection and page layouts.
