Instructions on How to Get Your Heart Broken

Book Design

There was such a sense of purity and emotion in the 2013 Young Writers Workshop anthology. Each poem and piece of prose inspired this bold, almost completely typographical cover. The title had so much meaning that the best way to render that was through hand-drawn type.

A saturated background is relieved by the fluttering of white carnations–a flower that has a certain significance in the world of hearts, broken or otherwise.
