This handsome hardcover anthology features the literary world’s finest from Gabriel García Marquez to Edwidge Danticat. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Neustadt International Prize for Literature, this book collects writings by the prize’s laureates over the years.
I remained minimal in the design for this anthology leading with bold lettering and a spot gloss of all the previous laureates flooded across the background of this slick book jacket. The rich blue foil imprint pops and pairs nicely with deep blue end sheets.
We also pulled out all the stops to fit the academic presentation of this book—a silver ribbon alludes to the prize’s silver feather and adds a touch of prestige. I also art directed all the author illustrations for this anthology—Yinan Wang sketched each author with muted detail and I’m so pleased with the end result.
The book is available from Deep Vellum!
