Book

The Beauty Fools

Back

“The Beauty Fools” book is shaped and proportioned like an oversized box of tarot cards, placed in an embossed, gold foil box, which also contains a small deck of bookmarks with colourised illustrations from the book, expanding on the tarot theme. The illustrated book cover features tarot symbolism such as “Rising Sun”, which stands for the joy of life or the beginning of a journey, and “The Bag”, which provides tools for a journey. The character of tarot cards is conveyed by a design integrating Southern Baroque stylistic elements with a bygone serif typeface.
