Bill Bryson's 'A Walk in the Woods,' Book Re-design

  • A Walk in the Woods, Re-design
    Dust cover that opens to a map
  • This redesign of Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods would be an update to the contemporary author’s book: a special editionre-print with a dust cover that opens up to a trail map-slash-poster. I thenincorporate the map theme running throughout the book’s chapter openings. Thetypography on the cover plays in the image, literally walking in the woods.

    The trail map gains humor as the reader finds out that Bryson makes fun of how small and unhelpful many Appalachian Trail maps are when trying to hike the unfamiliar path.
