Book: El Patio Andaluz

Shorty after building his dream house, the owner, who had spent four years in design preparation, self-published a book documenting the finished project and the process leading to its completion.

Along with photographs, the book includes architectural plans, sketches, and renderings; interviews with the architect and the custom tile designer and manufacturer; and essays by the owner, architect, and landscape architect.

After many months of work, the owner engaged another designer to complete the work (using my content). I remained engaged with the project, working with the owner and the second designer up to pre-press.

These samples represent my work:

- 90-page concept book design and production

- Wrote or edited all the text

- Produced half the images, and post-processed all image files.
