Eclectic Book Covers of Cardon Webb
A successful book cover conveys not only a book’s basic facts but also, often, an emotional aspect of its content. Cardon Webb makes the hard work and artistry of balancing text with imagery look easy.
Cardon loves typography. His Cardon Copy project in 2009 was an illuminating experiment about message and content. He appropriated real bulletin-board flyers—advertising an apartment for rent, a cleaning lady’s services, a lost cat, and so on—and redesigned them word for word, “hijacking...and overpowering their message with a new visual language.”
