Andy Westfall, a Humboldt County rancher, took gorgeous photographs and collected stories from ranchers for over a decade. We worked closely with him on the layout and typography. We took samples of the handwriting of Joe Russ, a pioneering Humboldt County rancher, and used them to create a typestyle for the book title and chapter headings. The result is a remarkably beautiful printed volume that captures the unique character of the land and ranching community on California’s remote north coast.
