The King

A book of poems assigned by Francine Kass at Norton. The poetry is very intense and deals primarily with motherhood, specifically breastfeeding. The jacket goes to press this month.

The alternate comp I'm showing here uses a photograph. I loved how the splash created looks like a small crown:

And the final design, splatters (milk?) forming the icon of a crown (rorschach-like). I had tried using a similar concept on another title, but it works much better here.
