New Poetry Book by Duane Vorhees

New Poetry Book by Duane Vorhees

We designed a new poetry book for author Duane Vorhees. This is the second commission, and it will be published by Hog Press as well. The client wanted the cover to be a four-square of the words G-I-F-T, and initially I thought of the L-O-V-E logo, and one of the iterations had the ‘T’ angled, but it looked too derivative. After arranging the letters in a virtual square, I tried different configurations for the subtitle (God Runs Through All These Rooms), including the idea of a floor plan for a virtual GIFT house, but in the end simplicity won out, and above you see the final version of the cover. Below are earlier and rejected versions.

The book will be available worldwide some time in April or May 2020.
