by Paul DiFilippo & Jim Woodring
Scope: project curator; package and interior design
Cosmocopia is a book+art project published in 2008 by my small defunct art press Payseur & Schmidt. It was conceived as a collaboration between author DiFilippo and illustrator Jim Woodring. I acted as the overall curator and designer for each component of the project (book, puzzle, print, packaging), integrating DiFilippo’s short novel and Woodring’s artwork into a unified book-as-art object that balances the pulp, surrealist art and novel with a restrained and bold modern layout and design.
