A Million Little Pieces

Rodrigo Corral Design, New York, New York, 2003

Description

A Million Little Pieces is James Frey’s story of going through rehab at the age of 23 for drugs and alcoholism. Because this book is a memoir, the publisher wanted it, like all memoirs, to have a “human element.” Photography was chosen for this reason. The close-up of the hand supplies the human element while the candy sprinkles speak to the title as well as the idea of multicolored pills.
