Dusza

Dusza (The Soul) by I. L. Peretz is a book of short stories written in Yiddish in the early 20th century. It is the first of a series of books compiled with the intention of introducing often forgotten Polish-Jewish authors to a younger audience. It was designed in pocket size with an abstract hand-drawn cover illustration that sets up a flexible system for future books. The color palette consists of a dark and subtle shade combined with a neon hue for a modern feel and better stand out in bookstores. The type family chosen for the project is Quercus Ten by František Štorm – a modern book face with a genuinely Eastern European feel.
