Obsessive Commitment to Concept

This book cover was designed by Isaac Tobin, using hand lettering by Lauren Nassef. Lettering done by hand, yes, but not drawn by hand. Pinpricks through heavy card stock was the method, perfectly illustrating the book's title. Awesome. Haven't seen the book in person, but it'd be really cool if the hand pricking was mass-duplicated on every cover so you could actually feel it. Regardless, great execution.
