Shakespeare & Co

Part of a series of business cards I designed as print/design samples for a print store, this card was used to demonstrate to a client not only what kind of services we offered, but also to clarify what a card with bleed or no bleed would look like.  

While the actual historical bookstore in Paris has a visual identity that is rooted in the design of the 1950s, I didn't want to follow along the same vein and instead focused on the concept of "antiquarian books." The quote, spoken by King Claudius, comes from Shakespeare's Hamlet.

As a disclaimer, I have not visited the Shakespeare and Co. bookstores in Paris and am not affiliated with them in any way, nor was I asked to design this.
