— Columbine

With yet another high school shooting in the States yesterday (just eight kilometres from Columbine) – prompting no doubt calls for more guns – I am reminded of this wonderfully well-judged book cover from 2009.

 

Columbine by Dave Cullen, design by Henry Sene Yee (Twelve)

 

The  weight of designing a sophisticated and nuanced cover about a high school shooting must have been immense. Henry’s cover shows great restraint, and yet conveys an air of overwhelming sadness. A remarkable cover.
