A speculative trade paperback cover design for The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Film Industry by Legs McNeil. It’s a fascinating, practically anthropological work based entirely on primary sources.

The Other Hollywood is an incredibly valuable text for any Gender and Women’s Studies course. I wanted its design to reflect its academic importance. I realize that, given its subject, many people might reject the book out of hand, so I wanted to make it approachable – something no bookstore (college or otherwise) would have a problem displaying. At the same time, I also wanted the book to reflect its subject.
