BOOK JACKET - when you read in public
 BOOK JACKET DESIGN - 2012
There is something  called "judging a book by its cover", and how you shouldn't. As a graphic designer, you realize that to actually be able to literaly judge a book by its cover is the goal. A book should be designed so that the cover reflects the content, to make it easier for you to choose a book to read. You pick up the book, you study the cover and if it moves you? You read on the back and maybe you buy it. You bring it home.

But then, you bring it out of your home, into public space, where there's other people. People who judges books by its cover, just like you do. But they don't just judge the book, because the saying isn't really about books, not really, it's about all things and mostly about people. And that means you.

These book jackets makes it possible for you to communicate exactly how you feel about the situation, if you read because you're bored, if you are interested in talking to anyone, or rather just want to hide what book you're reading. Other people can with this judge YOU by the cover of your book, and (hopefully) get the right picture.
I. for when you just want to read a book and be left alone

how to tell people that in the most blunt and passive aggressive way, for family, friends and random strangers on the train.
II. when you DON'T want to read a book and be left alone

For the times when there's an awesome girl on the train or a cool dude in the library and you don't really want to be alone anymore, and reading doesn't seem to matter all that much, compared to actual human contact. Or perhaps the book just sucks.
III. When you are embarrassed about your choice of reading-material

E-books are damn discreet. Nobody knows what you're reading, because it has no specific cover. Now you can read whatever you want, the books you don't know why you love, the guilty pleasures, the books you just NEED to read, but are too embarrassed to read in public. Or maybe you're not embarrassed at all, you just want to be joke about it.
