The Case For

Cover design for "The Case For" book series.

This is a series of short books which make the argument for major policy ideas/new innovative reforms, largely centred on political economy. They are intended to be chiefly trade books for an audience of general readers interested in current affairs, politics and economics. Some books might also seek a student audience if relevant to politics/political economy courses.

Brief requested clear typography to be legible when the covers are viewed as web-sized thumbnails. Titles were expected to have varying lengths and the weight given to the author names and titles should be about equal.
