i like this collage a lot too, both the colors and for the way i can print it too. here is another cover idea. with two different blues over top also just to see what that would look like.

i liked that you chose this photo, so i just tried to add a uncomplicated font. i made it italic cause the shiny blanket was floating.

i like this one the best.
but lets wait to we have the cover

i like this top one a lot!! i think we should use it.
it will be easier for me to print also than the bottom one.

the larger areas of color will be better to print plus i really dig those colors, especially the bright green and the yellow color!

i'm working on a few simple covers that ill post soon too.

i set some type real quick for fun, i just found some more wooden type too, so maybe i'll play around some more with wood type. i agree that the typeface for the cover should be rather simple and classic to balance the collage.

i really like the blanket photo one you did... i'll keep working on different versions. :)

typography i like

i was thinking something classical would fit well with the collage. but maybe something other fit? i don´t know, lets just try different things. and i got to make the collage aswell! why am i only using times? u tell me

coverzzz need good typo---graphy

any images of type/font suggestions?

another cover sketch

Heres another cover sketch... I need to do something more with the type I have / am using. Customize some system fonts. At the moment I have a very bland group of standard type faces, any ideas for type??

a quik sketch for a cover

a quick first idea :) i took this picture and it came out like this...the type is conservative but i thought balanced the image.

what do you think?

i'm working on some more ... sounds good about the collage!!

p.s. -- we haven't settled on a title, right?
lets talk about that too. i'm open to lots of ideas for it. i just used u tell me here :)
hei nick,
this look great! i´ll start on a collage, with some bright colors, but not to bright. Maybe we should have a photographs with some nice typo on the cover of the book? think it will look nice to the collage.

i´ll post some collages real soon!

two print versions

I printed both of the prints...they're the size of the book 7 x 10 inches, printed on a very heavy smooth uncoated paper. This photo isnt so good, but they both came out really nicely! If you think either should be bigger, I can re-print them. I'm working on a prototype package to show you.

p.s. this image is reversed for some reason...the prints are both the other way around in real life.

printed package to hold the book + prints

so i was thinking about printing a multi-colored heavy paper pouch/sleeve to hold the book and prints. i thought if you made a paper collage similar to the one above, i could print those colored shapes, then cut out, fold and glue it to make a package...sorry the image above isnt very clear.

ill post a more colorful and clearer version later tonight or tomorrow. let me know what you think, i think it could be a rad way of holding all the objects :)

i think they should be smaller too.
we could make a pack with the book and the poster in it,
that could be a bigger, so the posters fit.
but then they can´t be 2 big,
u tell me!

and maybe a print with 2 of your photographs?

tirsdag 3. juni 2008

i agree :)

the totem should be smaller i feel but the other may need to be folded, which i have mixed feelings about...

any ideas about how to incorporate them into the book?

i think we should begin to arrange the book into a final layout, i'd like to print it soon.

maybe one or both posters should come with the book?
