This is one of the books designed by Spencer Levine, whose studio we visited and who talked to us about book design. He worked for Neil Pardington before going out on his own, and I think that the influence of Neil’s design is evident in the books designed by Spencer: clean, classic and uncluttered.

This book is a good example of a cover that uses an image and lets that image speak for itself. It’s also a good example of the bright colour plus black and white formula I’ve talked about, and it’s worth noting that the colour used on the cover is repeated on the endpapers and throughout the internal design of the book which creates really nice continuity. I noticed that a lot of the books designed by Spencer used colours like the blue here or bright yellow to really nice effect.
