High Fidelity - Nick Hornby

I was a little bit short on time, so I did everything at once and wasn't able to post the process and get feedback before moving on to the next phase. But feedbacks now are very welcome! ;)

The book I chose was High Fidelity from Nick Hornby. For me. it was those kind of books that when you're reaching the end you start reading it slowly because you don't want it to end.

For those who haven't read the book or watched the 2000 movie with John Cusack, here is a quick plot summary (taken from wikipedia):

Rob Fleming is a London record store owner in his mid-thirties whose girlfriend, Laura, has just left him. At his record shop, named Championship Vinyl, Rob and his employees, Dick and Barry, spend their free moments discussing mix-tape aesthetics and constructing desert-island, "top-five" lists of anything that demonstrates their knowledge of music.

Rob, recalling his five most memorable breakups, sets about getting in touch with the former girlfriends.


I chose to make the drop cap from the author's last name and coincidentally, it's also the first letter of the book's title.

The final vector:

I feel like something's missing, but can't figure out what. I didn't think ornaments would match the book style, so I left it that way.
