Ethics in Judaism

Development and implementation of a design concept for a textbook on ethics for students, scholars and people otherwise interested in educating themselves.

This textbook is divided into four chapters, plus an an appendix that includes a glossary and a personal register. The graphic design concept developed by me divides the four chapters into four different colors, which can be found in the running titles, content boxes, source discussions and highlighted text passages. A sans-serif typeface was chosen, allowing for different text fonts and font sizes to be used. Image captions, Hebrew translations of important terms as well as QR codes for mentioned links are listed in the marginal column. Each section in the various chapters is introduced with a full-page illustration and a headline; the texts are illustrated with numerous images – five of them from my own photo archive.

Size 17 x 24 cm, hardcover, 328 pages, 103 illustrations.
