The Poetry of Our World

The Poetry of Our World

HarperCollins Publishers, New York, New York, 2000

Description

Due to the “collection” nature of this book, it was challenging to create a feel for the poetry without defining a specific genre of poems. I wanted to create a modern cover to introduce this collection as poetry of our modern world. In order to keep it from seeming dated, I chose the sans serif and placed it in a classic format. It needed to feel organic like a poem, thus the scribble and color shift throughout the cover.
