- Death of a Naturalist
Book Cover Design
- The concept behind the cover of this collection of poems by Seamus Heaney was drawn from
the poem ‘Gravities,’ which deals with the lifelong connection to our home and upbringing. I created the book title using a cross-stitch pattern on cotton material, the overall effect is evocative of traditional Irish craft. The back cover then reveals a city skyline, representing the poet’s move away from his rural home to an urban environment.
