Book Cover Design
Book Interior Design
Vanity-Karma by Jayadvaita Swami is a cross-cultural exploration in self-realization and spiritual awakening. Jayadvaita Swami brings India’s most celebrated classic of wisdom into dialogue with the most radically powerful wisdom book of the Hebrew scriptures.
The cover design uses a mandala wheel as a symbol of the knowledge of the Bhagavad-gita and the background landscape indicates the historical time of Ecclesiastes. The theme of the sun repeats through Ecclesiastes so a bright sunny yellow was chosen for the back cover. The text design is authoritative, crisp and scholarly for this philosophical text.
Vanity Karma is the winner of the 2016 Benjamin Franklin gold award given by the Independent Book Publishers Association for the year’s best book in the religion category.
