Poetry Lives Here cover, design by Melody Morrissette

I liked the idea of responding to the title, "Poetry Lives Here," by creating a physical indication of "here." The cover is an opening bracket, with a closing bracket on the back cover.

The work in this publication is from emerging poets. I chose typefaces from Village font foundry's Incubator collection for emerging type designers.
