Aliyah Marr’s Book Design

I am a versatile designer, ranging from online, interactive media, to print and video/sound; my latest work is in book design.

The Avatars of Eden

Desire

A black and white image reminiscent of a Man Ray photograph helps to ground this novel in the proper historical setting.

Race Myth

The image is of a popup toy that I bought in Chelsea a few years ago. Tension is indicated by the jarring offset of the foreground and background colors.

Anonymous

One of my favorite book designs. 3D art and book design copyright Aliyah Marr

The Visionary

Beekeeper

The redesign of a bestselling book.

The Lost Boy

Sometimes the best solution is a subtle one. Here the word “Lost” hides out in the open.

The Pearl

Unplug Matrix

This design emulates the screen of the Matrix. The title swirls as if going down a drain.

Make Offer

The “gangsta” theme of this book provoked a ransom note cover.

Creative Life

A “calendar” book of inspirational quotes for creative people.

DIY Tarot

Commercial images of tools form the letters “DIY.” A book for contemporary Tarot readers.

The Tarot Key

The Tarot Key explores the ancient wisdom of the Tarot in a modern context.
