Cover design (and poster design) for the first issue in 2020 of the Japanese design magazine ブレーン / Brain. We took advantage of this space to transgress a little bit from the norm of what constitutes a cover illustration and thus made an arbitrary, non-exhaustive selection of beautiful books. This work also echoes our habit of making lists/classifications for everything, like movies, artists, restaurants, etc.
The typefaces use for the contribution are Lausanne 600 and Lausanne Mono 300, both designed by Nizar Kazan. The Japanese fonts used for the magazine header are unidentified [edit: They have been identified by Akira, see comments].
