Ox Herding in Wisconsin

This is the latest book from Borderland Books, written by Richard Quinney. The design is a collaboration between Richard’s ideas and my implementation of those ideas in a book layout. The entire book, including the cover, was printed digitally at Worzalla Printing in Stevens Point. The book was published as a paperback because at the time that was their only digital binding option. The cover illustration was done by Carol Bjerke. Here’s the full cover and two inside spreads:

Richard’s description of the book from the Preface: “This is a daybook inspired by the parable of ox herding. For a long time writers and artists and students of Buddhism have found spiritual guidance in the herding of the ox. The material world may be an illusion, with much of human suffering caused by desire and attachment, but understanding and enlightenment are possible in our daily lives. In the course of a year, I have considered carefully the living of my life.”
