Postcards from Last Year

Designs for Book Covers

Just some ideas for projects we’ve been working on in class. I nicked the book cloth when trimming out the turn-ins on the red-and-black striped one, so that’s a heartbreaker…and I still have a lot of other inexperience-related issues to … Continue reading

Boxes & Shadowboxes
