Working with authors and professors as clients proves a unique challenge. As intelligent subject matter experts, their main priority is to ensure the cover of the book reflects the very complex content that lies within them. At the same time, the packaging of the content must provide an entry point to the reader that is not too complex and visually engaging.


These covers strike a balance between representing complex information and giving the reader motivation to crack the cover. The covers shown here represent select designs that made it through the narrowing-process. These cover designs would go forward to evolve into first and second editions.
