JAMES JOYCE: BOOK DESIGN

conceptual project: book cover design, layout design

 

James Joyce was an Irish author and poet considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde movement in the early 20th century. Colour and font choices reflect the time period in which the three books were written [Dubliners, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake], while the illustrations are much more modern and abstract, reflecting on the futurist/modern subjects he was writing about. The running copy in the inside layout continues with the same type of serif font which is both easy to read and an echo of the time as well.
