Statistics without Tears

July 2018

A surprise bestseller, Statistics without Tears had been in print for over thrity years when Penguin decided it was due a cover refresh.

The brief was to channel the original 1980s cover which (supposedly – although I can’t see it) resembles a face. I created a new typographic illustration, making a face from symbols commonly found in statistical calculations.
