These materials I designed for the State Library of Kansas/Kansas Center for the Book, to help promote the list of 15 outstanding (or, if you will, notable?) books written by/for/about Kansans.

With the caveat that all materials are intended to be printed by individual libraries across the state rather than professionally printed, I turned to the Bauhaus school of design for inspiration how to create something minimal and inspiring, that I could be reasonably confident would look okay no matter the print settings.

For the electronic version of the graphic, I was able to realize my original vision a little more closely due to the wider palette that digital provides. Printable versions live on the State Library website, if you’re into that sort of thing.
