“These words shaped history. They belong to you. Know them.”
This Scout Book project is the synthesis of many of the things we get very excited about: metallic inks, historical documents, recycled paper, democracy…the list goes on.
Scout Books is proud to introduce a pocket-sized edition of the Constitution of the United States of America. Containing the Preamble, the seven Articles and the twenty-seven Amendments, this tiny book packs the content into 32 pages and is wrapped in a two-color chipboard cover printed in black and metallic gold inks. Typeset in the oh-so-legible Gotham font by Hoefler & Frere-Jones, this little book is a contemporary update on a crucial text that aims to make the supreme law of the land more accessible. The front cover boasts Museo Slab, designed by the talented Jos Buivenga.
More than anything, we’re looking forward to republishing more copyright-free texts in the Scout Book format. The pocket-friendly size of the Scout Book Original makes content portable. Engaging with the format is an intimate process, and the affordability of Make Your Own Scout Books makes content more accessible to all.
