If you picked up Jay-Z‘s November 2010 hip-hop memoir ‘Decoded’, you may have noticed the amazing book design created by Rodrigo Corral Design.

For creatives, we are inspired by the type, the photography choices and the illustrations — drawn by Freelance Illustrator Matt Buck.

The book, covered by Andy Warhol‘s 1984 painting entitled “Rorschach,” is designed with impeccable visual imagery. Enjoy the gallery below.

By Teonny Spears

Pop culture extraordinaire, Mickey Mouse lover, Britney Spears fanatic, and occasional manipulative bitch from Louisiana. As a kid, I used to write short stories and draw pictures to go along with them, they were my escapes. I began blogging in 2005 on Myspace just to speak on certain celebrities and share my thoughts and in late 2008 early 2009 I started doing my own weekly BlogTV show called EnterSHADEment Talk, which ended in late 2012. Between the show, I was appearing on various podcasts and writing for the now defunct DefGlam. I just want to inform people about their favorite celebrities or actors, not for fame, not for attention, but because I generally love it. I enjoy all music but mostly pop. I'm into fashion. Rihanna is that bitch and MGK is underrated.
