Book Cover for “I Remembered”

This was a difficult cover to design. The author, Kristene E. Friday (pseudonym), whose book will be published through Culicidae Press, was sexually abused as a child but suppressed the memories until she was forty-nine years old and had a breakdown. In the text she describes her emotional state vividly, and based on some of […]

Book Cover Design for Joseph D. Reich

Version 1 For Hog Press we were tasked to design a book cover for a book by Vermont-based author Joseph D. Reich’s intriguingly titled How To Order Chinese During A Hostage Crisis: Dialects, Existential Essays, A Play, And Other Poems, to be published this summer. I prefer the red one but the author had his […]

Logo for ACSF

An unsolicited job. Working on the keynote speaker posters for the ACS 9 Forum at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, I noticed the lack of a logo for the organizer, the Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum.

Annie Finch Lecture Poster Here are four posters (drafts) we designed for the keynote speakers that will present their ideas at the ACS 9 Forum on Deer Isle in Maine during the 2017 symposium from the 14th through the 18th of May.

Ad Copy Design for Brantley’s Transatlantic Trio

Here are two ads I put together for The Scriblerian and the Wordsworth Circle to advertise Richard Brantley’s Transatlantic Trio book. It’s suprising how photogenious a book looks in the morning sun in Iowa outside the Culicidae Press offices… Client: Culicidae Press, LLC, Ames, Iowa  

New Cover Versions for Dutton Book

A book cover showing many small images of sunsets with the book title "Paid in Sunsets: A Park Ranger's Story" at the bottom and the author's name David Dutton at the top.

Here are three new versions of a cover for David Dutton’s forthcoming Culicidae Press book Paid in Sunsets: A Park Ranger’s Story. Certainly much more lively than the previous iteration;–)

Book Design for Phenix Books

Just finished a book design (interior and cover) for a Phenix Books publication by Catherine Miller. The author wrote an auto/biography about her relationship with her autistic brother. She wanted to have photographs of her brother on the cover. After initially working with grayscale images I decided to colorize several of the photographs. In consultation […]
