Books by the Sea

Editorial design of Books by the Sea—a newspaper about literature, reading and present culture, commissioned and published by
the St. Petersburg bookstore «Подписные Издания» (pronounced Podpisnie Izdaniya). The brief was to create a typography-driven newspaper that would emphasize breadth of content—the publication embraces different types of writing, such as reviews, conversations, Nabokov’s dreams recorded on separate cards, and a short story. This called for a flexible layout design which would respond appropriately
to the varying content.
