Hummingbirds

Design by Jarrod Taylor

Flirtation and the competition among students and teachers at an Upper East Side prep school is the focus of Hummingbirds; the jacket is beautifully whimsical and (sorry for the tired phrasing) jumps right off the shelf.


That vibrant blue really pops, just like it does on Digging to America. I've come to have such a low opinion of blue -- too many years spent in Web design -- but these restore my faith :-)

I like the upper one; in the lower, I see some sort of grainy texture, which I don't like and, you know, for me the mixture of colors is just not right, specially the blue-pink one. The font does not help either (or its tracking)...
