I am still working on reading the book (it has been on my list for years), but I have tried my hand at researching it. I decided to keep it as simple as possible, since Nietzche is noted for speaking simply and plainly. So: Black/white/red. He has also been noted for taking simple assumptions and turning them around... so I took the main title and put it on a 90º angle, making it top heavy(balanced by the subtitle). However, order comes through in the alignment of the letters HP and R. An idea in the book is the notion that things keep recurring, which I tried to symbolize by trailing the ascender off the right side, and the descender off the left, kind of like they can go on for infinity. Lastly, I wanted some kind of figure to represent either Zarathustra or one of the big ideas that comes through this book -- the "übermensch" or "overman" humanity is striving towards (if i am getting it)... However -- Zarathustra is fictional, and the overman doesn't exist, so i had the idea of making the background paper and tearing away the image. So it's really an image of nothing. Maybe I overthought all that, but there it is.
