    Another book jacket by Peter Mendelsund, similar to my earlier post, also using an in-and-out relationship between type and design elements. The vertical bars are done in bronze foil. (The “dead house” was a prison.) The five main lines of type are in something stronger than white burnout — a matte foil, probably, or maybe even screenprint?

    The book was designed by Soonyoung Kwon and set in Janson.
