Jason Booher’s cover re-design of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
“A little straightforward but visually arresting. The hanging body position with dangling legs connects the “killing” to the idea of lynching. The letters drawn by my daughter (who is 6) around the dead bird bring the conflict of the children of the book encountering this adult reality. As well as suggest a non traditional childhood logic—this is how Sadie used to write words and sentences where they just fill the space you have and you move on to the next line or space not really worrying if the words break up strangely.” -Jason Booher

Typeframe: Render vs. Cardboard

OK, now I give up. After seeing so many extraordinary, life-like 3D type models I had assumed this beautifully complex ‘a’ was of the same mould. But no. This character has actually been constructed physically. It’s made me realise that the line between 3D rendered graphic shapes and real constructed shapes is now imperceptible.

This Bodoni ‘a’ is part of a personal project called Typeframe by Gerard Miró of Lo Siento a Design Studio based in Barcelona, Spain. The ‘internal structure’ of the character has been constructed from cardboard “undressing the letter to show its skeleton”.

Liquid Calligraphy by Ruslan Khasanov.

I love the ephemeral brevity of these letterforms! I think these impressive lettering animations have been knocking around for a couple of years now, but I’ve only just become aware of them.

There’s more of this lovely set over at ruskhasanov.com.

Covered in characters

Above are a few of the typographically led book cover designs from the David Pearson exhibition, currently on in London.  

I love the ‘redacted’ George Orwell, 1984, cover with it’s debossed title under black ink. I was also quite taken with the chilling cover for Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.

There’s a week left to go, so if you find yourself in Shoreditch, London before the 28th June, drop in.

David Pearson is an acclaimed British designer, famed for his beautiful series of Penguin book cover designs.

David studied at Central St Martins in London (1999–2002) before taking a job at Penguin Books as text designer and later, cover designer. He left to establish his own studio – Type as Image – in 2007.

David played a key role in the recent re-emergence of Penguin Books through projects such as the multi-million selling Great Ideas series, Penguin by Design and thePopular Classics series. He has won numerous awards for book design, has been listed as one of Britain’s Top 50 Designers by the Guardian and nominated for the Design Museum’s Designer of the Year Award.

"Creativity or talent, like electricity, is something I don’t understand but something I’m able to harness and use. While electricity remains a mystery, I know I can plug into it and light up a cathedral or a synagogue or an operating room and use it to help save a life. Or I can use it to electrocute someone. Like electricity, creativity makes no judgment. I can use it productively or destructively. The important thing is to use it. You can’t use up creativity. The more you use it, the more you have."
