The Competition required me to simply make a book cover for "One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest". Whilst looking at the content with the book I found many interesting themes, however the one that stood out was the theme of "confinement". I found the story to be very enjoyable and how the goal from the very start had been to break out of the institution. It was when I was looking at the measurements of the cover that I had the idea, to have someone break out of the cover itself.
After exploring a few ideas, I came across what you see below, the idea of using a bookmark as a head. In my mind I was trying to capture the iconic moment in the book where McMurphy is climbing over the fence, as I thought it would make for quite a visual dynamic.
