Tree Full of Stars: Collected Poems
Biografía del autor
Anne Meek spent her career as an educator—teaching kindergarten, Head Start, and elementary and middle school reading before earning her EdD and becoming an elementary school principal and supervisor and eventually managing editor of Educational Leadership magazine and book acquisitions editor for the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development. She always brought her love of poetry into the classroom and organized the first Poet-in-the-Schools event in Knoxville, Tennessee, and continuing before and after her retirement to visit classrooms all over Tennessee and Virginia as an informal ambassador for poetry. Her own poetry has been published in Southern Poetry Anthology: Volume Six, Tennessee, Skipping Stones, The Poet’s Domain, Tennessee Poetry Journal, The Small Farm, The Phoenix, Plainsong, Windless Orchard, Phi Delta Kappan, Educational Catalyst, and elsewhere. She has in recent years served as an advisor to the boards of Hampton Roads Writers and the Cultural Alliance of Greater Hampton Roads.

Necesidades de diseño
The word I would use is "elegant." In terms of "modern" vs. "retro," I wouldn't choose either, but I would say something more traditional. But nothing like a gothic romance. Something tasteful, classy, beautiful. I think we should go with a 6x9" format, but I will also be open to designer input on that. In terms of fonts, nothing too terribly curlicue--I know that might be a temptation for an old lady's book. But probably not big san serif fonts either. I prefer Garamond or Cormorant kinds of fonts in my own life, and I find Calibri an abomination, terribly hard on the eyes and comprehension (is that an I or l?) except as headers. We do have some images that might be useful--but I'm not sure we should be too literal. My mother's choice of the title makes it a bit challenging not to be too literal and upload a bunch of trees, though we like the way the title refers to 1) nature, 2) family (as in a family tree), 3) sparks (or stars), i.e., the imagination growing out of soil and roots. Maybe that provides some ideas.
Lo que debe evitarse
Human figures unless they are abstracted into a pattern (for instance, I thought it might be fun to use a grid of small squares with small photos of my mom at different ages--but that was when we were considering a different titles). Rockwell-type sentiment. Anything too busy or fussy. I don't want it to look brash and young, nor dull as death. My mom is elderly but chic and vivacious.

Evaluaciones del cliente
Working with Ana was a joy! She is not only a great designer but she was extremely patient with me and made sure to take all my suggestions into account. I came into this with a cover I purchased elsewhere and wanted her to touch it up for me, but after viewing her portfolio I was amazed at a design she had done that suited my book of poetry much better than my original planned cover. She made great creative suggestions and adjustments along the way, showed me multiple design ideas and included my input seamlessly. I thrilled I was able to work with her and ABSOLUTELY LOVE my cover, it's completely perfect and as a first time author, I know everyone will be drawn to it. My experience and expectations were definitely exceeded.
