Cover story

Cover story on book design

I have done two cover designs for two books. One is a vegetarian cookbook published by Kopan Monastery in Nepal. The other a compilation of articles under the publication of Dharma Rain, by a writer who is a rice specialist in Northern Malaysia.

It feels good to be in touch with design again, after more than 15 years in advertising. My wish is to modernize the book cover for dharma books, making them look as attractive as other imported books on the shelf.

A beautiful look still matters to attract the sentient beings in our human realm.

The book cover title bears the calligraphy of
Zhi Cheng Fashi.

A cookbook with Kopan's favorite recipes.
Sketches from Nat Khadro who happens to be a vegan too.
