A Good Book, In Theory

book cover design
Client: University of Toronto Press
This is the third edition of Alan Sears and James Cairns book on social inquiry and the theoretical and methodologicalframeworks for critical thinking, A Good Book, In Theory. The previous two editions used books on the cover. I decided to also use a book: specifically, I used the second edition. By cutting windows into the actual book and revealing snippits of text, I wanted to convey the mental excavation work at the heart of any work in social theory.
