West Coast Line

Salt and Pepper, commissioned companion images created for the cover of Volume 42, no. 4, explore how different the essential form is of substances that are paired and ubiquitous in our culture. The Pepper plant was captured by an ordinary office scanner, while the salt residue (from Vancouver's English Bay) was captured by a 1970s Esko scanner. The design approach varied for each cover - responding to the textures, compositions and the nature of the texts within the journal.

These two cover designs were run as a split run. Each referenced the other on the inside front cover with a single tone ghosted image.
