‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’
These book covers focus on attention grabbing quotes taken from the book and displayed in vivid colours. The quotes give the book a unique quality since the focus isn’t only on the title but it absorbs the viewer in to find out what is going on. The decision to use hand drawn type in this way, was to appeal to a younger target audience giving the book a more quirky and fun vibe. Since these books are quite serious I decided to go in a different direction to this so that the target market will want to pick it up and read what it is about.
