Farming Cuba book


Farming Cuba by Carey Clouse presents Cuba’s urban farming program as a new model for cities and countries facing threats to their food security. The book’s design draws inspiration from varied plant spacings in garden plots, employing widely spaced display type and a strong grid. Monod, an irregular geometric sans serif, was used to evoke the country’s handmade signage and the DIY ethos of the agricultural enterprises outlined in the book. Economically printed in two colors, the book opens with a signature of full bleed color images.
