Hammer is the Prayer book cover

Posted by Gaétan Charbonneau on February 23, 2017

While extremely busy preparing my last exhibition just before Christmas I didn’t post this interesting book where an image of mine illustrate this elegant cover jacket. The sober image is based on a digital file, where a black & white film profile was applied to simulate a specific tonal curve and grain characteristic. Even if the book was printed with grey ink, I have found that the result worked quite well in this particular case. The best of both world, the predictability of the digital combined with the soul of the film!


Hammer is The Prayer, selected poems by Christian Wiman. Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Jacket design by Na Kim. A courtesy of Millennium Images.
