The latest release from author and poet J. M. Wieland is his second book of poems titled From Thorns. The formatting for this book was similar to the first poetry collection with the exception of including artwork in chapter headers for both the kindle and manuscript.
Book Cover Art:
A lot of the poetry in this collection dealt with freedoms and the challenges of the prevailing political discourse in 2017. With this in mind I utilized the image of a bird trying to resting its feet on barbed wire as a representation of all of us walking on a tightrope around our friends and families trying to avoid difficult conversations. The red eye was just an artistic touch to add some mystery.
This formatting didn’t really stray from the first collection, except for dealing with the chapter images in HTML. I did another simple press release for this book.
