The Merchant of Venice
Repackaging for the Pelican Shakespeare series, the authoritative resource since 1956, coinciding with the Bard’s 400th death anniversary this year. A total of 40 books, the series is ongoing and art directed by Paul Buckley. We used a modern linear and geometric style to approach these classics in a contemporary manner, categorized as Tragedies (black,) Comedies (light blue) and Histories (maroon.) The series won a Gold Medal at the SOI Annual Exhibition (Book category.) Thanks to Paul Buckley and Elda Rotor for taking a chance on me.
