David Mann Creates Some Happiness for Aminatta Forna
It was happiness indeed to receive such a great, in-depth brief for this one! From the start, we wanted to make a big literary statement, and create a special and unique package for Aminatta. Comparative titles on the brief were Hari Kunzru and Zadie Smith, who have incredibly bold, striking covers that are largely typographic. We could have gone that route, but we really wanted to get a sense of narrative and place into the cover as well as impactful typography.
