Tender Buttons Covers Progress

Here are my renditions of the Dust Jacket Covers. My layouts are based on containers and holding knowledge and emotions, so I chose to use the Fish trapped in a fishbowl as well as a "message in a bottle." The words create the bottle and the title splits the bottle in the center to break up the distribution of weight. The fish bowl very subtly sits on the bottom to bring your eye from the title down to the image. The textures and destructive nature reflect the many depths of Stein's poems and the simple palette focuses on the graphics and doesn't distract photographically.

  1. the container idea i like!

    the type (integration with image) it doesn't reference the interior pages at all?
