Saved by the Blues: 36 Stories of Transformation through Blues Music and Dancing is Rebecca Pillsbury‘s second book (author of the award-winning memoir Finding Ecstasy).
In this book, the author shares personal stories of how blues music and blues dancing changes and heals lives. The author was looking for a brand identity that expressed the blues spirit and its power to change lives.
The idea behind this brand identity is to keep the spirit of blues pure and stick to the basics. The guitar as the basic instrument for blues is the central element of the symbol.
The book´s title on top of the guitar´s hole shows the connection between the music and the outer world, where people are.
The book cover recreates a blues joint from the Mississippi Delta in the beginning of the 20th century, where and when the blues was born.
