Book design and illustration for a children’s book about Bigfoot by Laura Krantz. The text typeface is Watford (Atipo, 2020). It’s paired with the Extra Black weight of Atomic Alice (Letterhead Studio-YG, 2019) for titles, drop caps, and the big chapter numbers. The type palette is completed by Cortado (XYZ Type, 2014) which appears on the cover and the title page.
The Search for Sasquatch takes readers through the big guy’s fun, fascinating, and complex world, posing the question: Could Bigfoot be out there? Exploring the gray area between myth and science, Krantz takes readers on a strange, surreal, and surprising hunt for the fabled Sasquatch—showing us how to challenge our gut assumptions and open our minds to new possibilities, to think critically, and to use the scientific method along the way. The Search for Sasquatch asks readers to evaluate the evidence it presents and make up their own minds, all while considering why Bigfoot might be important—even if we don’t find him.
