A variety of print work for clients
birds of a lesser paradise
A book cover re-design for Meghan Mayhew Bergman's collection of short
stories Birds of a Lesser Paradise.
The letters were created with found objects, stored in a pizza box for safe keeping, that
I then photographed and edited.
Each object was selected for its relevant symbolic meaning to the short stories in the book. The stories deal with motherhood, womanhood and nature. One story could not be the poster child for the entire book. The letters depict the whole instead.
Ellipse Magazine is produced by Rochester Institute of Technologies senior editorial class.
The staff is entirely students with class' professors offering guidance. It is a collaborative
effort between photo and design students.
