This Side of Paradise is a novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, first published in 1920.
Beginning its life as a school project, I was assigned the task of typesetting Fitzgerald's first published novel and designing a cover to accompany it. As this project was completed in 2020, I decided to purpose the publication as a 100th anniversary edition. Celebrating the novel's long history spanning a century, I blended modern aesthetics with a sleek, contemporary cover and interior elements paired with traditional and art decoesque typefaces.
Beyond a Mockup
I ordered two physical copies of this project in matte and gloss from Lulu (a print on demand service). Beginning its life as a student project, it is such a rewarding feeling to see your work become something tangible to mark how far you've come and how far you'll go.
