Designed book covers, including font/type treatment, also designed interior layout, typeset, edited, illustrated, and published them.
When Sorrow Tries the Heart
A biography of my grandmother’s childhood.
A Word in Season
I illustrated a book of my childhood poems, from the four seasons.
Three Years of HCl Therapy
A reprint for my client regarding controversial medicine from the 1930s.
I built the lowercase letter “el” in the title from parts of 3 other letters of the font family. The letter needed to be distinct from the #1, and the capital letter I.
Stories of the Burned and Wounded
80 cases of hope and healing from the burdock leaf.
I had a lot of fun rearranging the background image, bringing the 2 stout trees closer to strengthen the feeling around the title, and move the lower water falls under the upper falls, so the water flowed into the center of the page. I also enjoyed “bandaging” the “t” in the title.
