AS PROMISED YESTERDAY, I have posted Bottom's Dream adapted from William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream by John Updike with music by Felix Mendelssohn and illustrations by Warren Chappell in its entirety on my Flickr. To fully understand Warren Chappell's book design, it's important to see the way the music is integrated into the text, the black and white spot drawings that work as marginal illuminations, the typesetting, the use of color, and the full page color drawings. On every page is a mix of many disparate graphic elements all brought together in a carefully measured way. Enjoy.

Coming Soon: Warren Chappell
