    Book Cover Design
  • The concept behind the cover of this collectionof poems by Seamus Heaney was drawn from
    the poem ‘Gravities,’ which deals with the lifelongconnection to our home and upbringing. I createdthe book title using a cross-stitch pattern oncotton material, the overall effect is evocative oftraditional Irish craft. The back cover then revealsa city skyline, representing the poet’s move awayfrom his rural home to an urban environment.
