||A Book Of Jeans Own!
Date: 2010 | Publisher: St. Martin's Press | Medium: Print | Role: Design, Production | For: The Onion, Inc.
A Book Of Jeans Own! was based on Maria Schneider's beloved Onion op-ed character Jean Teasdale, depicting her unceasing optimism in the face of a bleak existence and dubious marriage to Hubby Rick. The book was built from scratch straight from Maria's supplied text docs and awesome illustrations. The cover had glossy embossed type on a matte stock giving it an odd, 70's paperback feel (and Cooper Black always helps out with that).
Fun Fact: The cover was illustrated by Mad Magazine legend Mort Drucker(!) and designed by former Onion intern, now bookcover rockstar Lisa Pompilio.
