The Shape of Ideas
WATERLOG - Roger Deakin
In 1996 Roger Deakin, the late, great nature writer, set out to swim through the British Isles. From the sea, from rock pools, from rivers and streams, tarns, lakes, lochs, ponds, lidos, swimming pools and spas, from fens, dykes, moats, aqueducts, waterfalls, flooded quarries, even canals, Deakin gains a fascinating perspective on modern Britain.
For the cover we wanted to portray the native swimmer‘s right to roam. Water ripples were painted and cut out of various papers and plastics to create a image that flows across the cover. These were then layered on top of each other, and the idea of starting from the ‘o’ of the title made perfect sense. The swimmer was added as a finishing touch, and you can see an earlier version of the cover above.
