We were terribly pleased to design a little book for Granary Books written by Kat Ran author Bill Corbett (We published him way back in 2012.) and with paintings by certified-genius Rackstraw Downes. Take a look at some small spreads here. Get your own copy here and see how smart you feel.

A few minutes before this photo was taken in 2002, Rocky Stinehour and I chatted alone on that bench. There he reminded me that books are meant to be useful—not merely beautiful. It was that simple conversation in which he pointed out something so painfully obvious (but never discussed by fine printers) that completely changed the direction of my work—and my thinking about books and design, and their place in the world.
We prepared layouts and specs for Flaubert, a new biography from Harvard University Press. The book was then set by someone else (as per HUP procedures) which, frankly, felt like having someone else raise our child. But with parents like Fournier and Trade Gothic, it’s hard to go wrong. See for yourself here. And pre-order a copy here. [And insert your own clever reference to Flaubert here.]

Sometimes it’s nice to do a little plain-old symmetric typography. You know: Just get back to basics. And this little Buddhist treatise for Shambhala seemed like a good excuse to do just that—with the help of Garamond Premier Pro. Get yourself re-centered here.
