Designer Comments

This is a beautifully written book about the disenchantment of our world, how we got here and how we can recapture the wonder. I wanted the cover to have a literary feel. I wanted to convey an abstract concept like wonder in a succinct iconic way. I thought of a burning curiosity, a soul on fire, full of life and vitality. The scattered dots are like sparks/burning embers and help make it feel a bit more enchanted. The illustration is custom.

Judge Comments

This quiet project has a lot to offer. Nice swash in title typography and attractive custom illustration. Some inelegance in the drawing of the flame detracts a bit, but overall effect very nice. ML
