Visual Editions has published the third in their series of reimagined classics, in the form of Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote which, according to Visual Editions’ founders Anna Gerber and Britt Iversen, “aims to celebrate this famously bonkers, completely ridiculous multi-layered story while getting visually lost in La Mancha along the way.” Designed by Fraser Muggeridge Studio , who when “faced with the challenge of making what is an exceedingly long book readable and accessible”, made a feature of the scale with narrow pages that bring impact to the physical depth of the publication. A colour was also introduced to the text for every time that Don Quixote speaks, which “helps to break up the page both from a narrative point of view as well as a visual one.”
Anna and Britt commissioned Jacob Robinson to photograph La Mancha, “captur[ing] the wide, epic landscape… bringing through the book’s more contemporary voice and making it another great looking story in the process.” Jacob’s photographs and Fraser Muggeridge Studio’s design breathes new life into Don Quixote , their modern references to the historic novel add a great sense of play to an already multi-layered and strange story.
