Candide; or, The Optimist is an 18th century satire novella by French philosopher Voltaire. For this project, The Optimist gets a fresh and modern redesign for its English translation, intended to draw in new, younger audiences to appreciate an older yet ever powerful story. The redesigned book jacket would be available first at an event at an independent bookstore, which is advertised through a variety of posters and postcards.
