The Naked Now
by Richard Rohr
Cover design by George Foster

#1 Bestseller

This was my first assignment from Crossroad Publishing in 2009. Richard Rohr was already a bestselling author and I was thrilled to be on board for his new book. It quickly became a #1 bestseller and held that position for years. It is still in the top ten even now. Mary, my wife, had a lot to do with the cover design. It is just so perfectly naked with its blankness and monochrome color scheme while everything points to the mystic eye. The radiating lines motif began a new look for the author’s books at Crossroad. The next book I designed for him was the updated edition of another of his bestsellers, Everything Belongs which uses the motif in a different setting.
