Grammy Award winner for best art direction and design (2006)
Johnny Cash: The Legend special limited edition (20,000 numbered copies) is a 128-page coffee-table book containing five CDs, which feature some of the most relevant music of the artist’s career, and a DVD featuring some of his TV shows.
The intent of this book was to pay homage to the life and work of Johnny Cash. The book is designed in a way that it does not feel like a new item but more like a scrapbook that has been read over and over, full of history, containing a life of its own.
Its large size—16 by 12.5 inches—and its 100p yellowish cover stock used as text pages contribute to its heavy weight, which adds to the experience as the viewer goes through the life of this musical legend in this predominantly visual book.
