Project : My Escapee Book Cover
Client : University of Massachusetts Press
Art Direction : Corinna Vallianatos
Assignment : Cover art, lettering and design for My Escapee
For this immensely fun project I was commissioned to create cover art, book jacket design and hand-lettering for a collection of short stories entitled My Escapee by Corinna Vallianatos. I had the privilege of working directly with the author, Corinna Vallianatos, to come up with an image that encapsulated the characters and spirit of each diverse woman in her stories. It helped that Corinna's stories are fantastic!
"In Vallianatos ’ nuanced collection, winner of the Grace Paley Prize in Short Fiction, female protagonists struggle with untidy emotions and difficult realities: aging, self-doubt, and relationships past and present." - Booklist
