Fernau & Hartman Monograph - Cover

We are excited to share with you, the cover from the upcoming Fernau & Hartman monograph. David Blankenship, our book designer, approached the cover as both a tactile and visual experience. The title, Improvisations on the Land, is stamped into a taupe fabric case and then wrapped in a cardstock “half jacket” printed with one of our favorite photographs of the Montana Cookhouse. Dubbed the “tube top” here in the office, the “half jacket” is just that: a dust jacket that cloaks the book, leaving about one third of the case exposed. When the jacket is removed, a sketch of the Berggruen House is revealed.
