James Joyce for Vintage Classics

James Joyce for Vintage Classics

Bookcover illustrations for Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce, published by Vintage Classics.
The covers both use screenprinted storyboards. Each square image of the storyboards takes on a different element from stories in the novels. The images play off each other suggesting stories within a story - thus visually reflecting on the narrative techniques used by James Joyce.
