Leonardo da Vinci cover

Michael J. Walsh Jr., 2000

Description

The design solution for Leonardo da Vinci was straightforward, except for the question of whether or not to put type on the front. Some people felt that the image was more striking and mysterious without type; others felt that it was necessary to have the title on the front because the image, while highly provocative, would not readily say “Leonardo.” I decided to add the title discreetly at the bottom. I like the way the type colors work with the image.
