This is a practice series of book cover designs (Cove, The Long Dry, Everything I Found on the Beach) for the Welsh novelist Cynan Jones. The themes are a man against the elements, intense but contained emotion. There is pain here, but it’s somehow transformed into something beautiful through being so calmly, clearly considered. All three books are full of grief. Or, in lain’s words: ‘it is almost an ecstatic grief, a grief that takes you into a hyper clear view of your existence and the vertigo of loss.’ So, I used black and white to express pain and struggling. I chose different represented elements from each book, combined them together to illustrate.
