Faber Finds generative book covers
Print on demand (POD) is becoming more mainstream. English publisher Faber & Faber has also joined that field. The task given was to build a “design machine” which would be flexible enough to generate a very large (theoretically infinite) number of unique designs, one for each single book ever printed in this range. The imprint has currently 4 genres, each with its own slightly varied style and rules. Faber also commissioned the super talented Canadian typographer Marian Bantjes to create four designs used as templates.
