The Comet's Tale

Cover design and book design for a self published novela. Paul Seftel, an artist and traveler, opened up a collaboration where the design and words developed together. Ideally this results in an authentic and rich experience for the reader/copilot.

Cover Artwork for paperback book
Cover design and book design for a self-published work by Paul Seftel. This process was a collaborative one. Experimentation and play allowed researched imagery (Durer and Kepler illustrations) to be combined with the author's photography, artwork, and illustrations. 
Further research and experimentation resulted in a system of symbols—based on military graphics, hobo symbols, and space symbols—being used on the cover and injected into the text. 
EXPERIMENTATION & PLAY
Author's name removed from cover speaks to the book representing artistic aspirations rather than commercial ones.
The Comet's Tale featured at Spoonhill and Sugartown books in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
