Lore Scores

By Tk Published on .

Madison, Wis., design/advertising shop Planet Propaganda has won a 2005 Good Design Award from the Chicago Anthenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design for its limited-edition book design for the American Players Theatre's Book of Lore. The coffee table hardcover recounts the 25-year history of the American Players Theatre, an outdoor Shakespearean repertory company based in Spring Green, Wis., with a decidedly winning theatrical presentation. "The book simulates the experience of an APT performance as it takes you on a winding journey, off the beaten track, away from the familiarity of the city and into the darkening forest where the theater comes alive and sweeps you away with it," says Dana Lytle, Planet co-founder and CD. Book of Lore will also be featured in the American Institute of Graphic Arts annual 50 Books/50 Covers showcase. A spread from the book is seen here.
