Book Design Collaborations

A book design collaboration with artist and writer Joseph Minden. 

Soft Hans is a long form fairy tale poem and all the design pulls through some of the key themes prevalent in the story; hands and blood.

There is an emphasis on the hand made. Each chapter is introduced by illustrations of hands in counting; I typeset and letterpressed the covers in red vermillion ink; The books were saddle stiched by hand.


We launched the limited edition book in 2016 at the Koppel Project in London.
