About the book design and execution
David Bellin's short story collection The Marble King is available in both paperback and hardcover with a dust jacket (as seen on this page). Designer Chris Hallman included customized graphics on each story's opening page that are thematically related to the text, as well as the beautiful marble graphic on the full title page. Also included are "teasers" for the stories on the left-hand pages before the story openers. Dual edition book covers can create their own challenges, particularly when a dust jacket is involved, because more information is present on the dust jacket than on the paperback. Fonts used: Adobe Garamond Pro, Adobe Caslon Pro, Garamond, Goudy Old Style, Minion Pro, and Times New Roman.
