Art & Design
"Stillness" is a debut poetry collection, and I hope to reach a wide audience of poetry lovers and non-readers alike. Many of the poems are short, and the poems highlight the silence within every moment. I would like to find a minimalist but eye-catching book cover that will allow people to understand that "Stillness" is a book that, if given the proper time, space, and thought, might bring a bit of peace, hope, and silence into their lives.
What's your vision?
I would like a book cover/book sleeve (front and back) designed for my forthcoming collection, "Stillness." Stillness is a poetry collection that invites us to return to the silence present within every moment. There are five central themes explored within this work: Possibility, Love, Letting Go, Renewal, and Home. The poems presented within these five themes explore memories, desires, and the need or greater mindfulness in life. I'd love to see book covers that pay homage to some of the most traditionally "still" thoughts, landscapes, or icons, while remaining unique and modern at the same time.
Please view the attachment for front cover text and possible back cover text. Please note that we are still generating back-cover content, and we'll need to find a designer who is flexible and who can add in our back-cover copy once the design is finalized. If possible, I'd like to work with a designer who can create a unique non-stock-image design.
