Things That Never Were by luminatii Things That Never Were by luminatii
Some book covers that never were,
for Miranda July’s “No One Belongs Here More Than You.”

I made these for Paul Sahre’s [link] typography class;
Each one is entirely typographic in nature, but based on the principle:

expression }-----| design |-----{ function

Each cover represents a place on this line.

Thanks, [link] for the book base

P.S. I never come here anymore :<

I ♥ Miranda July. Your cover for her is an awesome piece of minimalist/bauhaus action! No clutter, nothing to distract. That would stand out in any bookstore. The second one is amazing. If the tubular elements spelled out the title or author's name - that could sell. An art piece that also functions as a book cover - that would be Phaidon Press worthy material. I encourage you to try one like this but with a title or author name - it'd be almost graffiti style - since you obviously have the artistry down. The third one is an amazing concept too. I love the colors you chose and having all the book info posted on the spine. Brilliant. The added touch of that tiny paragraph of text moving diagonally across the other info = win. It's my favorite of the bunch.

Holy crap, I just realize that you are taking a class from the a graduate of my university! He did a lecture here a couple weeks ago. Your designs are very nice. Clearly you're learning a lot. :)
