George Haecker is an architect in Omaha who writes poetry. We’ve worked with him on two short books, the 56-page Meanderings and the 84-page Meanderings Too.
George wished to take a simple, minimalist approach to the design of his books. The colors chosen for the book covers are warm and rich, a nice backdrop to the Lexicon font and the custom-designed bar code on the back. The short poem lines work well in the 5 × 7 trim we decided on in the launch meeting. Both books were produced as print-on-demand paperbacks with matte covers.
