An accessible field guide to help the reader process their trauma through Spiritual Autobiography.
Collaborating with Broken Into Beautiful proved beneficial because their woodworking class gave me a plethora of images to include in the guide. Seeing them build benches for their communities served as an excellent metaphor for the rebuilding that the reader would be doing through the exercises. I also included quotes from group members to further encourage the reader and set the tone of the guide.
My strategy was to keep the guide accessible while still being visually engaging. I stuck to a larger type size for older readers with Filson Soft a typeface that would take the reader through the somewhat emotionally difficult exercises while maintaining readability and an empathetic tone.
