Like many designers, I'm a big movie enthusiast so I really enjoyed these projects. However, they could be challenging. I would often have less than four photos to work with, as in the case of The Blood of a Poet. I'm a painter by training, so The Horse's Mouth is a favorite, and I made a one-time special "decoupage" for this jacket. I was thinking about Lester Beall's work when designing Vivre sa Vie, and I actually started to think: "What if Lester Beall was given an Elvis Costello CD to design?" This was my approach, but I know he would have done a better design.
