    The “Art Edition” of this monograph features leather marquetry on the cover and comes in a Micarta slipcase designed by Marc Newson and Richard Allan. Micarta is a century-old resin and fabric laminate process that has a wood-like grain.

    Perhaps it’s a little curious that the illustration for a $6,000 volume (the standard edition is only $1,000) uses a couple of retail fonts rather than custom lettering — especially the handwriting script — but I can’t argue that Handsome and Chevin don’t work for the design. I think it’s a good cover, and fitting for Newson’s work. The squooshed Chevin is a letdown, though.
