Design Rationale

The image reflects the fact that advanced language is a particularly human achievement. It’s as if the book is (figuratively) speaking. The revised layout provides additional balance to all the elements while retaining the cultural overtones and taking a different position to how this subject has been traditionally visualised. The internals are simple, clear and an effective use of 2 colour.
