As a way to explore new design ideas, I started recreating book covers for some of my favorite titles. I began with two of my favorites: Pilgrim At Tinker Creek, Annie Dillard’s elegant, contemplative book of prose about our natural landscape and life. And Invisible Cities, an exploration into the imagination of Marco Polo and the cities he describes. The poetic prose is accented by conversations between Polo and the aging emperor Kublai Khan. Written by Italo Calvino.
