A pair of two

Posted on July 13, 2013


The brief we were given to design book covers was to design a collection of two books by Susan Sontag: “Regarding the Pain of Others” and “On Photography”. As you may expect, we were asked to design the cover of each book with its own identity, while making them part of a whole. Like brothers of the same family.

To reinforce that they are both part of the same collection, I printed part of an image discussed in “Regarding the Pain of Others” along the fore edge of both books. The printed image is the central girl from the photograph taken in Napalm, Vietnam.

And this is how both books look like together:
