Through this book I hoped to communicate Koenig's architectural style of continuation, linear movement, midcentury styling through color and image. Using a time appropriate typeface (Sabon) paired with something more sleek and modern (Avenir) creates that combination of innovation and classic. The color scheme is completely mid-century and gives each house and section its own personality and a very clear start (transition) tot he next house. We can see continuation through the flow line and imagery that bleeds off the page and semi-overlaps onto the next whether it be the same picture or just the same size photo in the same position. This gives the book a comfortable read. The photo heavy content allows the reader to relax and choose to read the content or simply browse page by page to get an idea of the house and its enviornment.
