Stand on Zanzibar
Art direction: Irene Gallo
One of my favorite covers this year. Typeface is Akzidenz Grotesk BQ Medium Condensed. This took quite a long time in Illustrator; tweaking the spacing and placement started to become almost addictive after a while. If this didn’t have to go to press I might still be at it.
