Mall

Spot Design, New York, New York, 2000

Description

Put simply, this novel is about a speed freak who shoots his mother, torches his house and heads to the local mall with a sack of weapons and a plan for more mayhem. I wanted the cover to work like a small poster and the seemingly simple image to be shocking but not obvious. It takes a second glance to realize you are looking down the barrel of a gun. The title and author text, separated by a typographical bullet, is placed in the center of the barrel to emphasize this idea.
