"Content Precedes Design. Design in the Absence of Content Is Not Design, It's Decoration."
The Odyssey Book Covers illustrate the story’s narratives of love, war, journey, and deception into intentional photography sets and meaningful typographic imagery. Through intent, the combination of digital and physical craftsmanship creates striking compositions.
Handmade Typography + Photography = Amazing Book Covers
Typography is already cerebrally expressive. The Odyssey Book Covers enhances typography’s communicative capacity by creating physical expressions and thoughtful documentation. Each letter was crafted by hand in multiple locations around New York City, including Coney Island, Manhattan, and Long Island.
