Book Cover Design for Philosophical Memoir

Using Adobe Photoshop to create the classic depth and intrigue of collage, the book cover design comes together to illustrate the title of this memoir.

The layered underwater imagery and handwritten passages from Arendt’s own writing serve as a visual metaphor for the thought provoking conversations between the author and her subject, the political theorist, Hannah Arendt. The deep darkness combined of the sea combined with the bright beam of light from above invite the reader to dive in as this philosophical journey unfolds.

Produced for print reproduction and digital distribution. Book size: 5.25″ x 11″, perfect bound cover. Cover font: Bodoni Book. Published using Lightning Source and IngramSpark by author Kathleen B. Jones.
