We decided to make the cover and the editorial images entirely by hand. We wanted to capture the essence of every category (Eating, Drinking, Music & Arts for example) in the design and illustration of each letter of the word “Favorites” by creating fun, unique and physical icons that would reflect the characteristics of each topic, all in different materials.
