Book cover, 5.1 x 7.8in paperback
This was a lot of fun to design. I came up with quite a few initial visuals, but the strongest by far were those based on 90’s Act Up/Queer Nation posters – testament to the enduring strength of the originals. The typesetting was done by outlining the text then physically adjusting it to fit the width of the text block, even on the back cover blurb. The end result was printed in two different fluorescents.
