Space Opera

Earlier today we posted work from Gollancz‘s new Sci-Fi series, Space Operas; a follow-up to the equally awesome Future Classics.

Series designer Sanda Zahirovic was kind enough to send over a bit of back story behind the work:

I’m a graphic design graduate from Kingston University in London and my designs were chosen through the Student D&AD Awards where they were nominated for a D&AD Pencil.

The covers are photographs of constructed paper, there are no silly photoshop effects. The idea was to connect the traditional book with it’s futuristic content, by manipulating the paper in to a new form that is relevant to the story. And to encourage the SF readers to be proud of what they are reading.
