West designed the book cover for Sandcastle Kings
, written by Rich Wilkerson, Jr. Wilkerson, Jr. is a pastor and personal friend of the Wests, who performed the ceremony for Kim and Kanye’s wedding. Returning the favor, Kanye designed a simple and minimalist cover for Wilkerson, Jr.’s debut book, which “uses a passage in Luke to talk about faith and Jesus, and how there are things – self, others, religion, and the world – that can get in the way of your faith.” The cover features a calligraphic typeface spelling out “SK” with book details in small print. On why Kanye was the perfect choice, he says, “I know Kanye as my friend; we talk about Jesus. And that’s the whole point: God doesn’t care about scandals; he cares about people. So it makes sense for Kanye to design the book cover. It makes a statement.” Not only that, but West owns DONDA, a content, experience and product company that made this venture even easier.
