Justice

Client: Black Ocean
Book cover design

Justice is the first posthumous collection of poems by the Slovenian avant-garde poet Tomaz Salamun. (The second is Andes, whose cover I also designed. View that project here.)   I designed the book jacket and the foil-stamped hardcover.  I also created a custom font for this project, which was used on the cover and in the book's interior. The poems are surprising and playful and a little confusing. I tried to capture this spirit in my design.

Over the top (but real) client quote: “Justice looks sosososososo goooood! Ugh it’s amazing!” This cover made Electric Literature's list of the 16 Most Beautiful Book Covers of 2016
