Cover of An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin. "Steve Martin's latest novel, about the art world, evoked many images. However, with a strong title and a revered author, a bold typographic solution still seemed the best. We wanted to reference fine art painters, but did not want to appropriate any one artist. A paper stock that emulated primed canvas was used for the jacket and the painted lettering received ultra-gloss lamination to imitate the sheen of oil paint." 6 x 9.
