Poetry Collection Cover Reveal

Since I’m self-publishing my collection, I had control over the design. Being the artsy fuck that I am, I made the cover myself!

It has just the right amount of discordance to convey the discomfort that I feel is so present in each poem.

Anyway, here we go! No sense dillydallying.

A grey and blue compass on a green and blue high-contrast marble background that reads "Compasses and Other Ornaments of Direction" by Coryl Reef

It’s just a thumbnail. But I’m very, very pleased with it. I designed the compass by hand from sketches and then to a digital rendering, and the background is from hand-marbled paper that I scanned and messed around with. I’m proud of how the design ties into the poems without being overt.

Next up will be the pre-order links! They’ll be coming fairly soon for both ebook and paperback through Amazon KDP and CreateSpace.
