BackLit series design

book series / fiction
Client: ECW Press
ECW hired me to design a logo and overall package for their upcoming paperback fiction initiative. The books (mostly reissues of original text) all follow the same cover style and include value-added endmatter such as excerpts and interviews with the author. The trick was to figure out a series look with a light-enough touch that each novel still retains its visually unique identity on the shelf.
