    Book of Poems by Steven Dalachinsky
  • Book cover explorations & final execution for a collection of poems by Steve Dalachinsky. Met with the poet to discuss his intent with the collection. After reading through the poetry, I executed a few versions that I thought fit the tone. The collection of poems were mostly written by him sitting in jazz clubs experiencing the music and mood, so I wanted to use jazz instruments somehow on the covers. In the end, an image that the poet wanted to use was¬†integrated into the cover art. Illustration was eliminated, and it became a clean, type-driven cover.¬†
