19th Century Author Biographies / Book Cover Series (3)
Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, & Mark Twain
The concept for this biographical book cover series was centered around the author's place of origin, and features elements that directly reference those places. A papercraft technique was used to create a three dimensional landscape scene which would enforce the idea of the author's setting and help achieve a sense of cohesiveness through out the series.
I chose to incorporate fences and other small icons to depict the author's life and to help illustrate what kind of environment these literary legends were exposed to and how that had direct influence on some of the most famous stories in history.
