1001 CLIMBING TIPS – BOOK DESIGN AND LAYOUT
"Imagine an alien came down to Earth, stuck a probe into a climber’s brain – one who’d been climbing for over thirty years – and then transmogrified the contents into a big book of climbing tips. Well, 1001 Climbing Tips by Andy Kirkpatrick is just such a book."
A lovely and truly enjoyable book to design. Andy had no design constraints – I could do what I wanted … how refreshing! The result is a richly designed, wittily written, award-winning book that I'm very proud of.
You guys 'in the know' might recognise a bit of influence (and hopefully, my homage to one of my favourite designers) in some of the design elements here ... think The Haçienda.

I've also added a few books to Issuu if you'd like to see some of the internal pages.
