Mary Poppins book cover

Mary Poppins book cover

I decided to create a new book cover design for my third year university project and I chose Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers.
I wanted to make a design from a different viewpoint, so I tried to step away from the well-known covers, where they have the main character on usually with her umbrella.
My design is a capture from one of the chapters in the book, when Mary Poppins and the kids, Jane and Michael visits Mrs Corry, the bakery woman, and they pay for their ginger breads by sticking their pennies on Mrs Corry's coat.
I used found images, pencil and digital colouring for my artwork, as well as different textured papers to create an interesting collage.
