The Waste Land

WasteLandPackHere’s my design for T.S. Elliott’s The Waste Land. It’s clean and simple in black and white. Click on the graphic to download a printable PDF of the entire package. The images are from Baltar at stock.chng, who allows his work to be used without permission. All credits are in the small print on the back of the tray card.

The typeface is Trajan, designed by Carol Twombly. Patterned after the text on Trajan’s Column in Rome, the classical Roman letterforms are a nice counterpoint to the rough, heavy black shape.

The format includes the CD insert, tray card, CD face label, and printing instructions in a single PDF file. Leave a comment about the design — especially the printability. If this formaty works well I’ll use is at the template for other LibriVox designs.

One of my favorite fonts. It really stands out with the rough black background.
