Jane Metcalfe, co-founder of Wired magazine, debuts her first book, Neo.Life; 25 Visions for the Future of Our Species. The book explores new thinkings in neuroscience, genetics, synthetic biology, fertility, and human performance.
From interviews with geneticist and futurist George Church to profiles of artist Lynn Hershmann’s antibody experiment. Neo.Life documents the leaders that will drive the next phase of our evolution.
The design of the cover, printed with a holographic foil, was designed to entice and engage a larger audience than the scientific community through bold typography and innovative printing techniques. Morla Design handled all aspects of creative and printing production.
