An Ode to Adams


The guide had “Don’t Panic” in large, friendly letters on the front. 

The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is easily my favorite series printed. It such a cheeky and bizarrely outlandish set of stories that illustrating it is not only a challenge to depict the text, but a tightrope walk to not get an overwhelming amount of hate mail for getting it “wrong.”

The entire spread is sharp, quirky, and has lots of detail displayed cleanly to prevent an information overload. Plus it brings out some of the more obscure references which is a great fit for the subject as the author was known for the sort of thing.

Clearly when it comes to piece of English prose Rachel Katstaller was a Heart of Gold.
