The Emperor
The Shadow of the Sun
Travels with Herodotus
Shah of Shahs
Limited edition of Ryszard Kapuściński’s most recognizable works. For years the most famous Polish non-fiction writer, widely read abroad, Kapuściński is still a big name in Poland. The client did not let me choose the materials for the books covers (I would have gone for uncoated paper, obviously), my input is limited to the design only. I decided to shun photographs, or any realistic imagery for Kapuściński’s writing is very poetic and metaphorical, a quality I wanted to show in my design of the covers. I limited myself to three colors only with a thought that I could turn these into screenprints someday.
