Design Notes

Roma Non Sponte Sequor, by Stefano Acunto. (Capolavori Productions, 2011).

The non-commercial distribution of this book allowed me to keep the cover minimalistic – a contrast to my cover designs for Simon & Schuster Pocketbooks. Inspired by Ancient Roman architectural inscriptions, I kept the focus on typography against a faded Mediterranean red.   -CP
