The Fall 2017 season was very busy at Onça Publishing. Not only was I kept hard at work on upcoming books for a record five publishers, I’ve also had six new books published with my design or typesetting work in them.
The mailman brought me a new book with Onça Design, but not just any book: this is Bill Gaston’s new collection of short stories, A Mariner’s Guide to Self Sabotage, which will be published by Douglas & McIntyre next month.
This week I received in the mail two books that I’m very excited about: The Promise of Paradise by Andrew Scott and The Orange Balloon Dog by Don Thompson. I designed the interiors of both books, but they are each special for a different reason.
