Find The Future - Book for NYPL Centennial

Find the Future - book bound by Gavin Dovey @ Paper Dragon Books.

The project was part of the New York Public Library centennial.

This book was a Herculean task, as I laid out 600+ pages in about 4 days; if there is a place in Valhalla for designers, then surely I've earned my seat at Odin's table.

This was supposed to be finished in one night; unfortunately, I don't think I got past 70 pages by the original 6 AM deadline. However, at least one observer credited the Wizard of Awesome for "displaying tremendous grace under pressure."

And I can now say I have a book in NYPL's special collection. Take that, David Carson.
