Concise Lives

Client: Kube Publishing

Skills: Book design, book over design, branding, cartography, vector drawing

Kube’s ‘Concise Lives’ series comprises three richly illustrated biographies by Edoardo Albert, of renowned figures in Islamic history: Al Ghazali, Ibn Sina (Avicenna) and Ibn Battuta. My brief was to provide cover designs and full page layouts for each, in a way that maintained a common visual identity for the series, along with sets of maps and some other illustrations and decorations, illustrating the subject’s travels and the geopolitics of the times.
