The concept of the book revolved around a hip hop record. A constant flow, no abrupt chapters, a constant flow from one honoree to the next, including variation in scale with images and type. Four types of papers were used to add to the layers and a hole was drilled completely thru the books to support the record concept. The cover concept was when there's smoke there's fire. Received a silver BDA and was featured in the AIGA and PRINT design annuals.
