THE BIG SLEEP
by RAYMOND CHANDLER
This cover design is the material I submitted to the Penguin Design Award 2013 • Book Cover Contest. The book is about a detective and some mysterious crimes that take place in 1930s Los Angeles. Therefore I made a dark and sinister cover featuring the dark buildings of LA. Strong use of typography was one of the main requirements Penguin Books made in their brief. I used my own typeface for the design.
