Print design for Georgina Li's Like They Always Been Free, a collection of short stories that range from contemporary, rural America to fantasy and science fiction.
The information traditionally reserved for headers or footers is placed on the outermost margins, to make individual stories easier to find as you flip through the book.
Each story begins with a two page spread of a tree line. As you progress through the stories, the moon rises from the lower left corner to the position you see above.
In Li’s story “Notes of the Founders,” a tiny planet and moon symbol serves as a break icon. As you progress through the story, the moon orbits the planet.
