Edward Ruscha Book Jacket

Edward Ruscha is an American artist known for his large paintings of letters and words. My mandate was to represent his work in the form of a book jacket. Ruscha's passion for typography is such that he believes that "letters have no size". This statement is what drove me toward the final jacket. I designed custom lettering for the cover, each letter takes on different characteristics than the next, yet all part of the same family. Variety between letters is what creates this interesting texture.
