Book Covers

Book covers are one of my favorite places to explore the intersection of writing, art, design software, and metaphor. I’ve designed or provided the featured artwork in collaboration with a number of authors and publishers.

Armor & Ornament, Christopher Lee Miles

For this book cover, I worked with Alaska University Press to heavily modify a print by Albrecht Dürer, and the author asked that I consult on the overall design as well.
