Typophoto Wool Book Cover
A tactile re-design of Hugh Howey’s post-apocalyptic novel Wool. The title itself references the wool constantly being pulled over eyes of the characters. To further engage the reader in this metaphor, wool was used as the main material for the cover’s re-design.
The title’s letters are constructed to roughly create a bold neo-grotesque sans-serif typeface with substantial line width for legibility. The wool is stretched and tied around needles, pins and thumbtacks to resemble a detective board, evoking the same sense of unease and mystery that Howey incorporates throughout the story.
