The Prince

Art Direction and Book Design.

Machiavelli has been a controversial figure ever since his writings were published at the close of the Renaissance. This is due to the frank and forthright nature of the guidance to prospective rulers he shares in The Prince. Not much is sacred for Machiavelli, and he does not shrink from advising about things like manipulation of public opinion, deception of the gullible, or the use of violence for political purposes.

The book comes with a hard cover in luxurious dark grey Van Heek Coloretta cloth and embroidered details. The cover design was inspired by representations of power in modern day menswear.
