The vision for the book is sharing the evolution and vulnerability of the artist’s journey expressed through his art.
The project was broken into several pieces the most important of which was the first, the selection of the works to include. This gave the context for page size and number of pages, and assembling the digital assets began. Next came incorporating the content piece by designing the layout for the book’s sections and individual spreads, and assigning images. It was decided that a foil stamp would be featured on the cover of this hard bound edition, and the title art was designed. The book also features a dust jacket, which showcases two of Tom’s paintings. Next came researching and identifying the print vendor, as well as shepherding the project through the proof stage and final production.
