(Just kidding, print’s not dead!)

The “death of print” that everyone was predicting 10 years ago never happened; according to Time, sales of physical books have increased every year since 2013. More than ever, people crave tactile, embodied experiences, and a beautifully designed book is an object to treasure.

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to push the boundaries of print with special finishes and textures, Pantone inks, foil stamping, varnishes, die cuts, and embossing. Scroll down to check out a gallery of many of the books I’ve designed over the years for publishers such as Fantagraphics, Klutz, and Quarto. Unless otherwise noted, I designed both covers and interiors.

Several of these books have been nominated for Eisner Awards or have spent time on the New York Times Best Sellers list.

(Please note that Disney books have not been included here because, well, I’ve designed so many of them. You can check out a dedicated section of my design for Disney here.)

Long live print!
