A Field Philosopher’s Guide to Fracking

book cover design
Client:Liveright Publishing (a division of W.W. Norton & Company)

In researching for this title, I found that the two most visible consequences of fracking are 1) that tap water can be set aflame; and 2) that fracking can destabilize the ground to the point of creating earthquakes. The author, Adam Briggle, approached the threat of a fracking operation in his town of Denton, TX using his own philosophical training, and has written a book about the experience.

So I created a cover that would work well for a philosophy book, and cracked it.
