Book design for the 2011 edition of the Mills College literary journal.
Cover art by Tyler Bewley.
I designed and typeset the Mills College literary journal, 580 Split, for the 2011 edition of the journal.

For the cover art, I contacted Bay Area painter Tyler Bewley, whose series of 'freeway acqueducts' (many of his paintings feature ecological themes and future dystopias) seemed an obvious fit for a journal named after the junction of an East Bay freeway.

The book was set in two Hoefler, Frere, Jones typefaces: the subtle serifs of Hoefler Text for the body (which featured a lot of poetry) and the clean, retrofuturistic Verlag for titles and headers.
