We had the pleasure of designing and producing, in collaboration with Riot Communications, this beautiful clothbound hardback for Waterstones. Editor Cathy Galvin commissioned eighteen writers to reflect the mood and changes of 2012. These included fiction writers, essayists, and poets such as Will Self, Victoria Hislop, Andrew Motion, Hanif Kureishi, Lionel Shriver and Jackie Kay. Our job was to ensure the books were produced to the highest standard to do justice to such an amazing array of talented writers. The book uses gold and burgundy foils on red Brillianta, with red/burgundy printed endpapers. Designer Emma King did a wonderful job of both the case and text design while Kristen Harrison managed the editorial and production processes.
