Jessica Hische, Type and The Kissing Game

Just recently Jessica Hische and I finished up designing the cover for Aidan Chambers new short story book THE KISSING GAME. After reading the the lead title story our designer Melissa Arnst made the suggestion to be that this cover should be an all type. I of course was totally on board.
Jessica's name came right to mind. Her love and passion for type was something that I had seen for awhile on here blog and was excited to see what she could do for our cover.

Here is what we came up with. In later posts I'll go over how this cover evolved.

Here is a video of Jessica discussing her love of type and her DROP CAP series.
