Book cover design for The Age of Skin, a collection of essays by Dubravka Ugresic published by Open Letter Books of Rochester, NY.

The strength of the tile led to a purely type-led approach, with the type was constructed from hand made ink marks.

The loud, chaotic title type is anchored and contrasted by the smaller, sensible author name, set in Commercial Type's classic Brunel.
