Alain de Botton Series

17 June 2012

Calibre in use by Aaron Gillett for his Alain de Botton series.

The strength of Alain’s books lies in how accessible and relatable they are. Through his writing, he shows how philosophy might be useful in anyone’s life. A series of books and subsequent posters were designed to reflect the nature of this work.

I’m pretty certain this is a student project. Either way, it's a solid design. Gillett has put the books together nicely, they are unfussy and seem very accessible. A classy job. The serif is Mercury, by H&F-J.
