A cover for NYU Press that came out last year and was designed 2 years ago. Thought I would share a couple of the outtakes I came across recently. On Speed, which was pitched to me as a history book, examines amphetamine as a case study on the place drugs occupy in our culture and our fantasies. Sometimes old comps influence new ones (which I'll post soon). Interesting too how the second comp makes me think of Issac Tobin's Obsession looking at it now. No comparison...his cover is amazing (and just won 50 books/50 covers). However, tiny dots work well to mimic pills too.
Final cover, a graphic take....though technically I'm not sure my pills are completely accurate.
