New book came from Italy today.It is a reuse of an illustration I previously made for The Word Magazine (UK)’s supplement CD jacket. When the publisher, Mondadori of Italy, asked for this image to be used on a book, I was not sure how this square image was going to turn out on the rectangular surface. I am, actually, loving this clever treatment they did. Big thank you to graphic designer Manuele Scalia.
