Essays in faith

Religion in America: A comprehensive guide to faith, history, and tradition, edited by Harold Rabinowitz and Greg Tobin.
Design by Nate Salciccioli.

I'm kind of a sucker for texture, and I really like how the graphic elements appropriated from the flag seem painted onto a wall. The muted color values and chipped look of the illustration suggest history, while the subtle color shifts in the stars indicate the varying religious beliefs held in the country. The white space around the type seems perfectly considered, as well as the narrow sans-serif type, which accents the vertical composition of the cover.
