Typography Activity - 3 Nephi 11

I created a typography image using the scriptures, with the call of action being to come unto the Savior. The text is taken from 3 Nephi 11, and is the Savior's literal call to action for the Nephites to come unto Him and see that He is the Son of God. The image I tried to create was the Savior descending out of heaven to the Nephite temple in Bountiful, with the text "Behold" and its accompanying ellipses representing the Savior, and the body copy at the bottom of the image representing the temple itself along with the gathered Nephite people. The font is all the same in the piece, but if you look closely, you'll see that the font representing the Savior is smaller than that on the temple, and that the temple font grows slightly larger with each level. I chose the Georgia font, because it seemed to closely resemble the font found in the scriptures.
