Judges’ Comments Subtle and classical, this cover has a striking but simple idea at the heart of the design. The hand-lettered type is a perfect manifestation of the book’s title. Judicious use of colour, with the red reflected on the inside cover make this book a lovely object, free from any airs and graces.
