Book Design

As a serious book enthusiast, I took a designer course from award-winning book designer, Peter Cocking. The assignment was to create a cover wrap, title pages and spreads for any book I chose. On a previous trip to Japan, I bought a gallery catalogue showcasing superb illustrations from classic animated films. The book was geared for a Japanese audience and lacked the same energy put to film. I hoped to capture that in this experimental design using a panoramic structure while keeping a serious tone in the typographic arrangement.
