Books by the Sea
Books by the Sea is a newspaper about literature, reading and present culture, commissioned
and published by the St. Petersburg bookstore «Подписные Издания» (pronounced Podpisnie Izdaniya). The brief was to create a typography-driven newspaper that would emphasize breadth of content—the publication embraces different types of writing, such as reviews, conversations, Nabokov’s dreams recorded on separate cards, and a short story. This called for a flexible layout design which would respond appropriately to the varying content.
