I’ve just begun doing a bit of graphic design work in addition to my traditional painting projects. I was delighted to be able to design a cover for the publisher Roman Catholic Books for Alice von Hildebrand’s latest book, Dietrich von Hildebrand and Edith Stein: Husserl’s Students.
In this book she shares with the reader her personal knowledge of her husband, Dietrich and contrasts his personality with that of Edith Stein. It was so enjoyable to read the text, I confess that I was distracted repeatedly from designing the layout.
I designed the cover to show the separation between Dietrich von Hildebrand and Edith Stein. The photos show both of them in their twenties – young students journeying down very different paths. The font selected for the title and subtitle is an homage to the personal, handwritten notes that they left behind in addition to their published work.
