First and Second Edition Book Set
This was a fun project for my friend and author, Andrew Bonazelli. The story is loosely based on the relationship between two washed up action stars (not Seagal and Van Damme, but exactly Seagal and Van Damme). A lot of different elements went into this design, with the cult style-collaged cover and illustrations of main characters.
For the first edition, Andrew and I riffed on some ideas. We landed on this idea that the book would look like a VHS tape and would come housed in the old style clamshell cases (that those of us born early enough would remember). This book came complete with video rental punchcard and a fake receipt.
The second edition featured some extended artwork on the back cover and since this edition was more commercially available, I cleaned it up to make it look "pretty" on the shelf.
