Book Art

I just started reading Jesus for President by Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw. I have no idea what i think of the book, all i have read is the introduction.

but…I really like the layout. Its not just straight text, the designer used a lot of pictures, illustration, and typography throughout the book. It reminds me of The Ragamuffin Gospel Visual Edition (which i really like). Now, don’t get me wrong, i think a well set (and traditionally set) book is beautiful, and hard to do, but at the same time it’s refreshing to read a book that is a full and serious text, but breaks completely with the norms.

now, if its a good book, all the better.
