Stories from the Polycule Book Design
Stories from the Polycule is a 270-page paperback collection of essays, poems and comics exploring the experiences of different people living in polyamorous relationships. The cover presented the challenge of creating a complementary design for not just provided artwork but also custom lettering for the title. The overall design reflects the playful tone set by the cover illustration.
The front and back covers incorporate a honeycomb pattern that reflects the book's theme of connected modules. The colours were chosen to complement the colours used in the illustration.
Because it is a collection of many essays, poems, etc. divided into six parts, a fairly complex table of contents was necessary to outline the material.
Each section of the book begins with a comic related to the topic contained within.
