Judges’ Comments With a deft use of typography and print production and an understanding of a book’s architecture, Heart to Start shows that these two designers are in control of their content and craft. Various paper stocks and large typographic quotes create a dynamic rhythm, ritualising poignant moments and heightening the pervading sense of the author’s intelligence.
