Sejjieħ Il-Ħsieb

John Baldacchino

Book cover design for Professor John Baldacchino. 

The handwritten type represents the book’s content combined with the author’s personality, incorporating his own handwriting, drawing in nostalgia. Like each stone in a rubble wall (“ħajt tas-sejjieħ”), each letter is unique, referring to the concept of ‘bocage,’ which is used in the text.
