This beauty is the newest cover from Jamie Keenan, a cracking designer and all round nice chap.
Where Chefs eat
Designed by; Kobi Benezri
Where Chefs Eat is an international restaurant guide listing contributions from more than 400 of the world’s best chefs. The book is inspired by a 1956 local phone directory of residents and businesses in Hastings that was given to Benezri from Alan Fletcher years ago.
The book is printed with a one-colour process and is 704 pages of pure typography and Benezri’s hand-drawn cartography- in which each map was specifically drawn for the book. The listings are set in many typographic styles but the titles were all set in Tobias Frere-Jones’s Garage Gothic.
‘There’s more than a fair amount of typefaces in this book, including a few unreleased ones that I had drawn myself over the years — some were used once in a single projects, other were never used — needless to say, this was a good chance to utilize some of them and ultimately create an object that would truly stand out on store displays or the online retail sphere.’ -Benezri
I know the blog has been a little light on updates recently but this cracking new cover from Dan Mogford is the perfect opportunity to get started again. Amazing.
UK vs US COVERS
We at CMYK thought it would be interesting to see the contrast between our covers and those from across the pond.
UK (Vintage) covers on the left. US (various) covers on the right.
The Berlin Design Guide is the first in a series of new arty travel guides that could rival Wallpaper* if they keep this up.
The only issue I have is that there’s no Edinburgh guide in the works…
The Penguin Lines Series celebrate the 150th anniversary of the London Underground with one book to represent each tube line. Not bad at all, although some covers are much more appealing than others.
Each author chose their own images for their cover (which may explain why they’re a bit hit and miss) but the whole thing was overseen by Jim Stoddart.
