From Doodle to Design

University of Georgia Press’s Erin Kirk New talks briefly about her process of designing book covers, including a look at the cover of After Montaigne, about which she says, “For the cover of AFTER MONTAIGNE: CONTEMPORARY ESSAYISTS COVER THE ESSAYS, editors David Lazar and Patrick Madden suggested the idea of a ‘greatest hits’ album and provided vintage album covers as references. I found a stock photo of a record coming out of its sleeve, and did some doodles to see how I could incorporate a portrait of Montaigne onto it. The finished cover design looks very much like the sketch.”
