I Wonder

Marian Bantjes - I Wonder

Those of you with Lagmag Issue #2 in your grubby paws are already familiar with the amazing Marian Bantjes. The designer/illustrator/typographer has long been a favorite of ours, and contributed a piece called “How Are You” to the aforementioned issue.

She has been busy (as in, 15 months busy) conceiving, writing, designing and illustrating a book, titled “I Wonder.” Last week, she announced a presale and posted a sneak preview for the world to see. The hardcover book, roughly 6″ by 9″, is printed in 5 colors (CMYK + gold). The cover itself is gold and silver foil on satin cloth, and the pages have gilded edges. It will be released to the world in September 2010.

Should you need more of a reason to jump on this, the presale price is nearly 50% off. You can see a few more preview images after the jump, or, see them all over at Marian’s site.
