Design & Illustration: Poetry Book

by Max on December 10, 2002

A very dear childhood friend of mine had a thing for words and poetry, which I encouraged and supported, pushing him towards writing while I critiqued and provided pointers. And for a couple of teenagers, this pursuit was nothing short of a major accomplishment!

Two years later, and 34 poems in, I offered to design the book cover, page set and design, and several surreal illustrations to go with each poem.

The book took the poem title “Playing on Strings of Void”, and featured my accompanying illustration, which extended to the back cover.

I’ve included in this post a selection of the charcoal on paper illustrations, enjoy!

Tools used: Charcoal, FreeHand, Photoshop, QuarkXpress
