Tales of Beatnik Glory

As part of the launch campaign for Monotype's Masqualero, I produced a number of book jackets to demonstrate the typeface in use. Mostly these were titles/authors I conjured up myself, but Ed Sanders' Tales of Beatnik Glory actually exists, and just so happens to be on David Bowie's list of 100 favourite books – a list that I've taken it upon myself to design covers for. This would be number eight (have a look at the others here). I'm particularly happy with this one – especially how the fluidity of the marbling and the curves of the letterforms seems to melt into each other.
