Book Design by Syaiku Book Design by Syaiku
This is my first attempt at book design... done quite a while ago now, but I thought I'd share. A lot of work went into this, yet I haven't really shown that many people. This is a repackaging of an except from Robert Bringhurst's 'the Elements of Typographic Style'. He talks about how type is so versatile, and how the same 26 letters can convey content of such different meanings. To represent this, I used a fabric to cover the book. This fabric, held at different angles is seen as various shades of orange, red, gold and so on... A visual metaphor for typography and content!

Anyways, I'm not sure what category this was suppose to go into because I couldnt see one for book design! Enjoy!

EDIT: oops... i set it up as a print by accident... anyone know how to delete the option to by this as a print..?

Thanks David! Hmm, I have other pictures of the book I wanted to post, open too... lol But I wonder if people would tire of see it... I'm already hesitant enough to put work that's not anime/comic book-styled here... i wonder why!

Don't be hesitant, my friend! Show your diversity! You'll expand your audience and you'll certainly have the support of your friends! ;) I would like to see the other pictures! :)
