I started reading Harry Potter because I did not like it.
What was that fuss all about, anyway?
But then well, you could guess what happened. I found myself buying one book after the other.
One thing though bothered me so much to push me (inspired, let's say) into this self-initiated project: Harry Potter's book covers design.
I couldn't help but to feel a little embarassment to be seen with the book in my hands, with all these dragons and brooms flying...I wished these book covers could be less childish and more "contemporary" ,since the public range changed so much. ( Although there is a collection of paperback Harry Potter, with more mature yet sinister covers)
In making these graphics I tried to show the magical and mysterious feeling of the story, keeping in mind crucial figures and events.
These are what I wished my books could look like, published by an equally fictive publishing company.
