Folio Society – Books Research

A selction of covers for use as reference when design my cover for War Horse. The specifications state that the cover will be a two colour print onto cloth with the cloth acting as a third colour. Here I am looking into already published books from Folio to see what can be achieved with the cover design.

The Hobbit – Patterned with a small icon/logo style design. Using more colours than I am able.

Nineteen Eighty-Four – This shows how it would be possible to produce a fairly realistic illustration complete with shading using the process required. Deinitely something to bear in mind.

Metamorphosis – The use of a more transparent colour to create a shadow effect could make for an interesting final outcome.
