Numbers in the Dark

Numbers in the Dark

Pantheon Books, New York, New York, 1995

Description

Although Calvino’s stories are rich with imagery, I chose to design an all type jacket because I felt this particular typeface so well evokes the feeling of the stories. I hope to have succeeded in creating a classic, beautiful design for a wonderful book of stories.
