From Cover to Cover

July 28, 2013

This is quite a cool project called From Cover to Cover by designer Jenny Volvovski. It’s an ongoing project whereby she designs new covers for books after she finishes reading them. She has given herself a few limitations so that they look like they are part of a series – I like them a lot.

– I think a lot about book cover design while I am reading, and thought it would be a nice exercise to recreate the covers of books once I finish reading them. I decided to set a bunch of limitations for the covers because I wanted them to look like they were part of a series (at least somewhat). The rules were – green/black/white for color, Futura/typewriter/handwriting for text, and scans/drawings/photography for the image. Sometimes I didn’t follow the rules exactly.
