You’re welcome. Glad it turned out so well.

I was wondering, back in the thread, whether these booklets were a series or like chapters from a theoretical book, something like that. If so, I would suggest a standard design element or arrangement to indicate that.

In a way, these sound like 19th century pamphlets I have seen. And the Georgia you are using for the text refers back to Scotch Roman (Matthew Carter’s model for Miller and its step-sister Georgia), an English face that really caught on in America after the Civil War and into the beginning of the 20th century.

Booklets of those times often used a stylized frame or head trim. You might consider something like that.

And I would use Georgia, not Tahoma (or any other super-modern sans) for the cover type. IMHO.
