A Decade of Transition is a limited edition, self-published collection of poems from well-respected scientist Prof David Williams. Reading this beautifully written piece of poetry is like reading David’s travel journal, scientific papers and personal diary – a great book even for the less poetic reader.
Under art direction from lovely team at Design for development, I had the pleasure of working on the book layout as well as the cover design.
In order to let the poems speak for themselves, the book layout has been kept clean and minimalist. Easy reading flow has been achieved through pairing of the right sans-serif and serif fonts. The cover consists of a multiple exposure image of David, visualizing the transitions in his life.
