Illustrated covers for Wordsworth edition

typography & foliage for marvelous books
I am so pleased to present you the six classic stories we dressed up in gold, copper and silver foils for your greatest pleasure ! Please enjoy these little jewels we illustrated for.
For this project Rémy came back to the studio to work on the typography part, and I must say the result is beyond expectation. Typography and botany, we reunited with our very own identity! What a joy!
We thought a lot about how to create a series effect without losing every book’s spirit. For that we chose to create one single bold and elegant typography that would suit every story. This one would have variations in it to recreate unity on every book cover. Same same but different in a way.
On the illustration aspect, we tried to evoke the spirit of the book before opening it. For example, on Pride & Prejudice you can find the typical English countryside Fern & wildflowers where the book is set, plus the peacock feather symbol of pride. All of these merging and dancing in an elegant vals of arabesques.
For the books to be perfectly completed, we knew we had to work on the first & last pages as well as the spine. So we imagined a bespoke pattern related to each story and some flying element to set on the spine. So when your book is on the shelf you can still have a glimpse of the marvels it contains.
