This is such a cool image for a YA audience. NY-based Stefan Sagmeister is one of the most influential graphic designers working today; any students taking design will study his work. He gave us permission to use his book cover in our own artist-designed image – he was delighted to be able to promote reading in libraries.
The resulting image is complex and sophisticated with a layered exploration of identity which will appeal to young adults. We have used the image to promote the way that reading similarly allows us to explore different identities. You can take this image in lots of different directions with the books you choose - fiction, travel, biography, psychology, fashion - everything from ordinary family life to the extremes of experience.
We designed this promotion for a YA audience but Stefan Sagmeister came to fame with album covers for The Rolling Stones and Talking Heads so you might find some patrons from the baby boomer generation rocking up to take a look too.
