Don’t ask me why it is called that. I thought it best not to ask.
Anyway, when renowned author Michael Wombat announced that he was producing a collection of his blog posts, musings and recipes I was only too happy to do a cover for him.
If you would like to own a print-on-demand book that looks like an old hard backed book, the link is here.
To see previous book covers I have done for him, go here.
These charts are scanned from Only An Ocean between, the second book in the America and Britain series. They were written to help Britons understand America, and vice versa. The second book in the series, Our Two Democracies At Work, is here.
Here you go, finally some work for you to look at.
I was recently approached by the University of Bath to provide a logo for a new project they are undertaking – to help “improve the manufacturing competitiveness of the UK”.
You can read all about the clever stuff they are doing in this press release, visit their website, or follow them on twitter.
Alternatively you could just have a look at the new logo…
Here’s a quick mock-up of a book cover I was recently asked to design. It was the first time I’d been asked to do a book cover, so it was an interesting challenge…. especially considering as I was quite keen to keep the design very simple.
I produced two visuals initially, and although the one above was felt to be most suitable for a thriller, the author loved the second design so much he decided to use it for a special edition hard cover.
If you would like to purchase the book (I’ve read the first two chapters and it seems like a rather good tale) the paperback version is available here, and the fancy hardback version here.
Here are some more Isotype infographics from the 1940s as a follow-up to yesterday’s post.
The book is called Our Two Democracies At Work, by K B Smellie. It is from a series called America And Britain, which “compares the political life of Britain and America by means of contrasted photographs and charts prepared by the Isotype Institute.”
Apparently “if you are British this book will help you understand newspaper items, films, and stories about America. If you are American it will do the same for you by Britain.”
And this was hidden beneath the dust jacket. Very nice.
