Eight Days of War

Eight Days of War is a book exploring timelines of The Bosnian War, a war that took place from 1992—1995. The book looks at timelines on different levels; chronological, photographic, timelines of key events and personal timelines, which come in form of stories. The personal stories are the focus of the book and this is indicated by a change in paper stock and typeface. The primary typeface used throughout the book is Akzidenz-Grotesk, a clear and crisp general-purpose sans serif while the personal stories use Courier, a monospaced slab serif resembling type from a typewriter. There are four personal stories in total, each giving a human and personal view of the war. The content for the book was self-authored and was the result of research, interviews and gathering artifacts.
