All Shall Be Well; and All Shall Be Well; and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well

All Shall Be Well; and All Shall Be Well; and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well

Keenan, Welwyn Garden City, England, 2009

Description

As this book was about a medieval reenactor and had the longest title I have ever seen, I decided to squeeze all the text into one manageable block and make good use of my handwriting/drawing style—which, even on a good day, looks like something done by a peasant from the Middle Ages.

Juror Notes

This design exhibits a remarkable command of spacial resources. The longest title in history, author name, quote, attribution and “A Novel” all fit into a neat corridor. And have I mentioned the charm and humor of the illustrations?
