The Lovely Bones

The Lovely Bones

We were set a brief to design and illustrate a book jacket, poster and another marketing visual to relaunch a classic or well known book in an inventive way.

I chose "The Lovely Bones" and decided to show the horror theme using the safe from the book (an angle of the story which isn't really potrayed in a front cover) but also still conveying a sombre and peaceful tone the book has in order to a new appeal. I also used mixed media - photography,collage and linework which I felt would help give the book a fresh and contemporary feel.
