Kama Sutra

Kama Sutra

I was commissioned by Penguin Books US to design the new deluxe edition cover of the Kama Sutra. The book itself doesn't contain any images and is the integrality of the original text by Vatsyayana so I was asked to come up with a sexy and fairly explicit cover that would stand out on the shelves and feel sophisticated.

I designed an illustrated font spelling out letters of KAMA SUTRA. The letters Kama Sutra are somewhat hidden as they wrap around the two flaps, back and front of the book itself leaving the reader with a bold and sexy cover. The book was published in February 2012.
