Watkins Web 1

Project 1

Choose two texts from the printed world, preferably ones that you know well. Text A should have a relatively flat prose structure (e.g. essay, manifesto, book chapter), while Text B should be more complex (e.g. recipe, instructions, interview, screenplay excerpt). Your assignment is to mark up the raw texts as semantic HTML and then typeset them using CSS.

For both texts, you should design the text in a way that responds to its content. Consider the relationships of your page’s elements in terms of classical typography: margins, measure, leading (line-height), and conventions like indents, drop-caps, and horizontal rules. Consider how your typography can be used to enhance, comment on, or perhaps undermine the text’s meaning.
