Henry James

A few months ago I had the honor of participating in Coralie Bickford-Smith's Penguin English Library series. The series is a set of 100 paperback classics, each with an illustrated pattern on the cover, inspired by Coralie's template for the uber-successful clothbound classics.

Here are my two covers for the American-born Henry James and his aristocratic shenanigans:

Special thanks to Coralie for the ideal assignment and wonderful art direction.

Little Book of Lettering

Last year I was asked by Emily Gregory to contribute some lettering work for a new book project she was working on. Today she's announced The Little Book of Lettering is now available for pre-order from Chronicle Books. A lot of great contemporary artists contributed work, so it looks like this is going to be a pretty nifty little collection.

If you're in the UK, you can get it from Bloomsbury under the title Reinventing Lettering.
