Empire Falls Book Design

Empire Falls is a 2001 novel written by Richard Russo. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2002, and follows the story of Miles Roby in a fictional, small blue-collar town in Maine and the people, places, and the past surrounding him, as manager of the Empire Grill diner. My design was inspired by the characters being trapped in a small town and the main character, Miles, trying to escape the drama of the town and the people in it but being trapped by having to work at the Empire Grill Diner.
