Tomer Hanuka
 / 

I absolutely love Tomer Hanuka‘s art, design and book covers. Over on his blog, he’s just posted the step-by-step development of a cover that ends up looking like this:

But wow, you’ve got to see how it starts out.

I love process! Love it!

I think the first Hanuka work I ran across was this cover he did for a new Penguin edition of a Marquis de Sade book. I love that he presents the whole thing, flaps and all. One of the things that makes book covers such a great canvas is their modularity; there are at least three distinct parts (front, back, spine) and sometimes two more (the flaps). They’re all related, but there’s also this sharp-edged division. (And one of my favorite things in the world is a book with a contrast-colored spine.)

Hanuka also did the cover for Alive in Necropolis—San Francisco’s One City, One Book pick this year. And finally, I think this poster for Blow Up is one of the slickest things I’ve ever seen.
