All Known Metal Bands (2008) Dan Nelson art director: Eli Horowitz design: Dan Nelson & Alvaro Villanueva notes: The aim with All Known Metal Bands was to make the book feel like the record of a culture rather than the project of a particular person. All explanatory info was placed in the back; the main text and cover were dedicated to a straightforward fulfillment of the concept. The shape of the book allowed a large number of band names to be placed efficiently on each page, and gave it a bit of a logbook feel. The cover design, with its vaguely Middle Eastern aesthetic, was again meant to emphasize the information over any particular image.
