"THE STRANGE TALE OF PANORAMA ISLAND" SLEEVE  2012 shareshare
Panorama Island


Panorama Island
For Last Gasp's English-language release of Suehiro Maruo & Edogawa Rampo's "The Strange Tale of Panorama Island", I did the book design, lettering, and touch-up. This page focuses on the sleeve design. I adapted part of the design of the original Japanese edition, but made some tweaks to better fit the horizontal flow of English.

It's quite striking in person, as the logos that you see in light yellow above are printed in metallic gold foil, as on the Japanese edition. We also chose to print the book as a hardcover, and larger than the original Japanese release. This book was a dream for me to work on, since I love Maruo's comics and feel more of his stuff should be available in English. I'm also quite fascinated with the work of Edogawa Rampo, the famous mystery novelist whose story this manga adapts.

I have lettering examples here, if you want to check them out.
