The Cypress Dome is a student based book filled with student's artwork, poetry, and short stories. For their 30th Anniversary they wanted the cover to be representational of the student's work that is inside them. Taking their direction I created a cover and layout combining their artwork. I wanted to convey a tone for the stories inside the book which deal a lot with death, daily struggles, and fear. The tree represents the iconic cypress tree that The Cypress Dome roots its values in. Emulating the student work, I created a handwritten font for the cover and the names on the back of the book.
