Antidote Book Cover

Book Design

For this book of poetry, the writer chose a layered and darkly arresting image. With such a striking title to work with, I knew I had to create a different twist on classic typography by adding a simple, gothic embellishment to the “o” in the title.

Using a tense crop that reveals only a small part of the story, as well as an off-center type alignment, I wanted to create a sense of visual unease that also drew the reader in.
