  • AN ETHNOHISTORIAN IN RUPERT'S LAND by  JENNIFER S. H. BROWN 

    For four decades, Jennifer S. H. Brown has examined the complex relationships that developed among the newcomers
    and the Algonquian communities—who hosted and tolerated the fur traders—and later, the missionaries, anthropologists,
    and others who found their way into Indigenous lives and territories. 
  • MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN by  CHAD KULTGEN

     A novel of dating, sex, and distress in an average American suburb.
    The cover makes reference to  the Internet landscape—and porn— that 
    the different generations navigate.
  • LOLITA  by  VLADIMIR NABOKOV

    Nabokov’s classic novel, with its teasing and complex characters,
    has always intrigued me. It  is the tale of a man driven and destroyed by desire.

    I tried to distill this book’s contents down to visual simplicity by 
    referencing the nymphet with her luscious lips. The color palette gives this cover
    a retro flavor with a modern look complemented by the script type chosen for the title.


  • THE SUN ALSO RISES by ERNEST HEMINGWAY

    Front cover, back cover, and spine.
    Hemingway’s account of the lives of a “lost generation” against
    the background of a wild Spanish fiesta and bull-fight still
    captures readers’ attention because of its intensity.
    Yet, life is described like a blur that leaves no traces of its fleeting pleasures. 
  • BOOK COVER

     The blurred picture of the bull-fight tries to capture the storyline
    while the typographic treatment and color choice support the literal meaning of the title.
