FINALIST: AGDA Awards 2016
'A digital, historical, physical, fun, provocative, contemporary, formally playful and generally delicious.'
A book that looks like it has fallen through time, at least until you open it up.
Hunted Down and Other Tales by Marcus Clarke collects and remixes three stories by nineteenth-century author Marcus Clarke.
This second edition of the book is a standard release. Although it does not contain the first edition's elaborate inserts (sorry), it does incorporate design from the circus poster and the newspaper clipping directly onto its pages.
Written by Simon Groth and designed by George Saad, the book is filled with typographic play, advertising, and self-reference while examining how much (and how little) has changed in the 150-odd years since Clarke's original works.
