Shentonista

This battered looking tome is actually a book designed by DO NOT DESIGN for a Ministry of Mavens event by Heineken and Esquire Magazine. The pages feature street photography of trendy individuals in Singapore’s Shenton Way area, taken from the Shentonista street photography website.

Curiously, each copy features a unique clay cover, designed to reflect the way these individuals are carving their own style into their concrete surroundings, as well as acting as a “concrete doorway to a world of pages filled with colour.”

Every few pages, you’ll come across a fold out, cut out, or collage section that reflects the hidden areas and secrets of a large city like Singapore.

Oh, and the pages are left untrimmed, rough around the edges if you like. Nice touch.
