This piece of writing was highly personal, cerebral and very abstract and seemed to be written in a manner that purposely left it fluid and uncategorizable. It also jumped freely between the past and present. It was a challenge to reflect this quality in a two-dimensional way that gave some clues as to the books content.

I chose to lay it out it in a way that would keep it vague yet intriguing, using old photos with a modern design that gave a sense of the cold northern territories and African American history.
