The brief was to design an engaging, typographically led, content driven book, within a limited budget. As this is a reference book, the contents quickly became the basis for the cover design. Word-heavy books can sometimes seem too dry and academic. Bibliotheque Design countered this by devising a flexible grid that allowed a controlled level of expression.
