Exhibit A

American Nerd: The Story of My People by Benjamin Nugent.
Design by Jason J. Heuer.
Photo-illustration by Shasti O'Leary Soudant.

A delightful illustration for this "disarmingly serious study of the history of the nerd in popular culture and throughout modern history." The spot glossed images sit nicely on the matte background; gold plaques indicate the objects set in the frames; and the subtle shift from right justified text to seemingly left justified images (which actually wrap around the jacket) to flush block of text at the bottom is well-considered and executed.
