Well-known typographer Jessica Hische created the cover art... an appealing design with graceful scrolls extending from the words.
Beck's avid fan, Ham, who runs Japanese fan site Hambeck, is not a musician. Nonetheless, she was inspired to contribute to the project by recreating the cover design via her paper cutting and quilling talent.
Ham's art is extraordinary, as you can see in this time-lapse video.
Not only that... her mesmerizing motions are backed by the singing of one of the book's songs by Beck fan Max Miller, who is accompanied by Rachel Roth. The recording allowed Ham's work to be shared on Songreader.net... a win for all involved!
Ham brings the graphic design to life as we watch her steady fingers apply the tiniest dots of glue and position hand cut scrolls, letters, and musical notes. For the curious, Ham used an NT Cutter art knife and quick-drying Konishi glue.
As a music fan, I can completely appreciate her passion and the many hours devoted to this project.
