Jacket and Case





In an age when books as objects are being thrown into question It is now more than ever that a designer should think of a book as a complete package. I believe very strongly that all the elements of a book from the interior to the case should appear that they belong together with each other. Seems like a no brainer. But there are many reasons why this might not happen. Costs, multiply designers, time, what ever it may be its always makes a book feel special when everything is considered. Here are a few books we have worked on. These show the Jacket and case.

I totally agree and I have to say that the touches you and your designers add to Amulet books make a difference. I thought that The Carnival of Lost Souls was so well done the whole book through. Keep it up!! I always like to see what you'll come up with next.

I love it when I find such surprises beneath the jacket! I especially like what you did with Joanne's book!

Gorgeous! The books of Spring '11 have been the most stunning I've seen yet. I can't wait to see what the Fall brings.
