I had the honour to design the format, the layout and the cover of Polish translation of On the Comic and Laughter — a classic book by Vladimir Propp, a Russian folklorist and scholar famous for his analysis of the basic plot components of Russian folk tales.

Inspirations

This time I drew inspiration for the book design from local architecture, namely mascarones, which are chimeric, crude and surreal face ornaments. Looking at them makes me feel that there is a thin border between being commic and frightening. As non-obviousness is something that I usually try to achieve in my designs, mascarones seemed perfect to be graphically processed and used as a base for the cover illustration.
