Job: Book design

I worked with Jesse Norman MP (UK) on the design this novella written by his 16 year old son. Jesse was looking for a modern cover with a sense of nostalgia, hinting at the storyline without giving away too much. I experimented with hand drawn type choosing to use it sparingly in the final design. I set the inner pages in Caslon, an old and reliable serif which seemed appropriate to the storyline.
