Marvel: The Ages Book Covers
In late 2018 I was contacted by The Folio Society to design the covers for a series of books containing full colour reproductions of some of Marvel's most important comics throughout the ages.

The brief was for the design to be mostly type based - so I was careful to be very historically accurate with the fonts I based the designs off.

I had a total blast working on this, and was blown away with how beautifully Folio Society put it all together! They're available for order right now on their web store.
The initial options presented for the covers: a comic cover inspired layout, a more traditional layout and a direction which included graphic elements - they chose this one.
The final black and white artwork for each cover.
