Canadian Water Politics

Canadian Water Politics

Salamander Hill Design, Elgin, Quebec, 2008

Description

I would be hard-pressed to explain why, but there is just something very Canadian about a Billy Boot. It seemed like the right image to use for this book on a very hot topic: Canadian water politics. This cover would have worked without the spot-UV varnish on the wet part of the boot, but it definitely adds another dimension to the finished product.

Juror Notes

Great cover image choice and wonderful use of varnish.

A surprisingly minimalist approach to a complex subject.
