This unassuming octavo is a 1652 copy of John Hoddesdon’s compiled Tho. Mori vita & exitus, or, The history of Sr. Thomas More, sometime Lord High Chancellor of England.  Hoddesdon was an unsuccessful writer and later turned to trade in 1658.  His life of Sir Thomas More was reissued in 1662 perhaps to pay off his debt (Hodson, ODNB). Apparently Hoddesdon’s book is not as thorough or complete as the reader thought it should have been (or maybe he really was just a terrible compiler).  The last leaf of the book features additional witty sayings by Sir Thomas More left out by Hoddesdon.  The reader did not make any other notes—only adding his or her thoughts at the end.

"The ‘A’ symbol embodies my own aesthetic and approach to design. It is clean, minimal and typographic. No more than it needs to be a simple representation of my work. The overall identity is strong with impact but also retains an elegant feel. I used a collection of design associated words as a visual element, some using alliteration and some not. A photo of me when I was two adds to the character and extends the visual language making it even more personal."

Aaron Canning is a graphic designer from Dublin, Ireland. He is extremely passionate about typography, book design and everything minimal. His work has a strong emphasis on structure, simplicity and clarity to convey his brief as accurately and precisely as possible.
