PROJECT TITLE: THE TOOTHPICK BY HENRY PETROSKI . CLIENT: VINTAGE BOOKS / JOHN GALL . YEAR: 2008
DESIGNED AT BUCHANAN-SMITH LLC . ART DIRECTION: PETER BUCHANAN-SMITH
As an object, the toothpick is pedestrian in form yet essential in
utility. The cover design for a book on its history renders this object correspondingly:
straightforward and unassuming yet bold and monumental.
