Strange Paradise book

Cover and insert design of Strange Paradise by Charlie Rubin, a book of photographs that explore the convergence of the actual and the artificial. The book’s offbeat type treatment was foil stamped on a soft cloth cover duplexed to a patterned navy paper and offset with a clashing teal taped spine. The insert materials reference the mundane found objects that appear in Rubin’s photographs.
