Book design

Karratha: 50 Years 50 Images 1969–2019 was designed as a coffee table book. The book features large photos and generous white space. Photos have been arranged in multiple sizes ranging from large full-page hero images to smaller portrait-style photographs. The arrangement of images creates a visual hierarchy and structures the book into smaller sections that guide the reader through the history of Karratha.

The book is unique in that it is in a landscape format – bound on the short side. At the time of print, this was the largest landscape-size book that could be casebound in Australia.

The book features:

  • full-colour offset printing
  • high-quality gloss paper stock with environmental certification
  • a laminated cover for durability
  • section-sewn internal pages
  • hard cover (casebound) binding.
