The Scratching the Surface book is a printed companion to my podcast of the same name. This book commenorates the first season of interviews by including an essay penned by each of my guests as well as an essay written by a critic who has inspired or influenced them. The entire book is set in Helvetica and Times New Roman, at once reinforcing and subverting a default aesthetic.
↑ The titles and body copy of each essay alternate between Helvetica and Times New Roman. Essays written by Scratching the Surface guests are set in Times with their titles in Helvetica, while their inspirations are set in the reverse.
↑ The entire book is set in black and white except for a red spot color throughout, whenever it references or refers back to the podcast.
