The Chomsky Perspectives series from Pluto Press is a collection of new editions of books from linguist and political commentator, Noam Chomsky. The covers for the series, designed by David Pearson, make bold use of Commercial Type’s Druk type family, mixing and matching its various widths.
Pearson has employed all of the available four weights of the typeface across the series covers – the range “makes it ideal for cover-filling exploits such as this,” he says. […] “My brief to myself was to fill the cover using all weights of the family – in a way that didn’t labour too much on fine detailing. The hope here was that the covers would retain a kind of vitality if I didn’t fuss over them too much.”
