It’s Not a Bad Life was written by the client. We edited his story, suggested additional content, and added historical background and other context. We scanned all of the images and added historical ones as well. The design came out of his love for everything Italian. The textured background colors are actually photographs of the sides of buildings in Rome. The length is 94 pages.
