The Oxford Companion to Wine is a comprehensive, renowned reference book about wine with more than 4000 entries. First published in 1994 to worldwide acclaim, the first edition of Jancis Robinson’s seminal volume immediately attained legendary status.
The design brief for this fully revised 4th edition was to revitalize the significance of the book in a complete relaunch with new cover and interior design. The design needed to reflect its outstanding importance in the wine market.
I created a bold, yet elegant, contemporary, yet authoritative cover design to underline its significance in the world of wine and to pay credit to its heritage.
The well-structured, clear, but unobtrusive typography of the interior design is broken up by full colour plates and illustrations. Despite the fact that this is a still comprehensive reference work, the new interior design makes it much more accessible to a broader audience.
