MHTI 20th Anniversary Book

Book design published as an archival commemoration by a heritage trust

The Mining Heritage Trust of Ireland approached A worthy Cause design on the eve of celebrating their 20th anniversary. A record of their activities was to be produced, something to read, kept and valued.

The trust is a group of experienced mining professionals and academics across geology surveying and other specialisations, who have by sheer determination made an impact across Ireland. MHTI have preserved the island's mining, both past and present, in archival form and with site conservations. We have MHTI's volunteers to thanks for engine houses and towers enriching our landscape, pits made safe and much more. They bring groups on tours, illuminating this oft-forgotten part of our country's history.

Production

Adobe's Creative Cloud suite was used to compile the book. Toshi Omagari's Neue Haas Unica (design for Monotype) was paired with Harbor Type's Garibaldi and M-B Creative's MB Empire fonts for the text. Neue Haas was tasked with notes & detailing, while Garibaldi did the heavy lifting of making the text easily readable (its soft angles and joins really make it bounce). MB Empire's stunning geometry lifted headlines.

&c.
