Dylan Thomas

I designed the cover and interior for this New Directions pocket edition of A Child’s Christmas in Wales. I love this piece of writing, as most people do, and to me it has always evoked snow. Lots and lots of snow. So I designed a number of snowflakes which appear throughout as illustrations of the atmosphere of the snow, falling, settling and “shawling out of the ground”.

The book is printed in two colours, a dark and light blue, used in various tints to evoke the types of snow, time of day and atmosphere.
