Book Cover Design Brief - A set of John Steinbeck Books
This was a book cover design project whilst in Uni. I chose 3 John Steinbeck books which are all set in California in pretty much the same timescale. East of Eden is about sibling rivalry and money coming from a dad. In Dubious Battle is about the fruit pickers strike at the time and The Grapes of Wrath is about the story of a family that had to travel on route 66 to find a better life.
I realised I could use a sticker device to tie-in the set together. They are all quite sad books so I chose to use slightly different saturated colour tones and textures. The map of California is there to help the layering effect that I wanted to create and to have another common denominator in all the books.
