The journey of larks and Life Books


Production Method




User Design



Berforts, UK

The illustrations and format of these two books are deceptively simple, but details like the titles on the saddle-stitched spine show the mastery behind the design. Life is good.

Project Description

The journey of larks is played with language, words, illustration 
and typographic shenanigans, including a wince of dentists, a lot of used car-dealers, and a watch of Swiss. Life is a picture-led book (no text) story about one day in the life of somebody.

Production Lesson(s)

Have a good previously established relationship with the printer/binder.”
