35) The Diary of a Nobody, George Grossmith, 1892 (cover by Lorenzo Petrantoni)

SO clever, and the minimal use of color is beautiful. Another book jacket that gives the reader a puzzle to solve right away, and even with so much going on, this design is clean and comprehensible.

We tried loads of photographic approaches for this cover before arriving at this. I created this illustration as a last-minute entry to the Cover Meeting, and amazingly it ended up being the finished jacket. Here's the finished cover, plus a close-up of the illustration.

The Man in the Woods, Shirley Jackson - The New Yorker

I love how the alignment of the words are worked into the graphic so that it looks like the whale, and the red in the script font below contrasts with the blue enough to stand out a little, but doesn't make it stick out too much since it's not the focal point.

Metamorphosis, published by The Folio Society. Illustrations by Bill Bragg.

APRIL• Simple graphics effectively convey the meaning of the title. Figure and Ground relationship of man's shadow is well executed here that add a sense of mystery. Additionally, the use of classic colours of the figure forms a strong visual contrast. Brown background looks retro.

I don't read much but this book was absolutely sensational. Touching, empowering and filled with beautiful imagery. Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. Thanks Meg for the recommendation.
