Farming Cuba book


Farming Cuba by Carey Clouse presents the country’s urban farming program as a new model for communities facing threats to food security. The book’s design draws inspiration from garden plot plant spacings, employing widely tracked display type and a strong grid. 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.
