Editorial 7: Bukowsky Publication

As with many of the other editorial pieces I have researched, I like the theme of monochrome with one chosen colour and here I think the yellow works well. The expressive typographic use of the bullet hole in the place of the ‘o’ is effective in portraying the harshness and brutality of Charles Bukowsky’s words and poems, as well as an onomatopoeic aspect in the sound of the ‘ow’ syllable of his name. On the left hand page, I like the neatness and symmetry of the page, with one main paragraph at the top and the body text split into two columns at the bottom of the page, divided by a greyscale image with a centred caption.
