Stassen Again bookcover

Overview: Bookcover design for MN Historical Society Press

Background: Stassen Again is a biography of a trailblazing Minnesota politician and perennial US presidential candidate Harold Stassen. We didn’t have access to the book itself when we designed it so we had to work from Stassen’s story and a trove of historical documents from the Historical Society.

Format:

  • 6 x 9" paperback book

Credits:

  • Fonts: Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk Condensed and Stratum

Visuals: The chosen design was based off a button we found in the documents. We remade the design using photographic textures and strong typography. The final result its a cover that is patriotic without being sensational and echoes an earlier design aesthetic but doesn’t look retro (or so we think).
