The Road: Book Cover Research

As part of my self initiated project and alongside the set of 3-dimensional illustration I am also venturing to produce a book jacket/cover redesign, utilising the many photographs I taken and experimentations in print making. In order to give myself a good grounding I am looking into book covers that are already out there to see what does and doesn’t work.

The use of texture is the most striking aspect of this cover and while it brings what is essentially a flat image to life it is perhaps a little overpowering.
