BOOK COVERS // Illustration + Publishing 

These book covers by Donna Tartt were illustrated based on motifs and themes found in each novel. Symbols were cut out of the front cover, which when opened reveal illustrations relating to each story. Donna Tartt is one of my favorite authors, famous for her incredibly descriptive and magnificent novels featuring stories of young adult discovery. This project aimed to reflect each story's beautiful complexity. The typographic elements are simple in order to provide some balance. The unifying aspect in each tale is found in hidden imagery among the illustrations. The clear motifs and themes were illustrated in white to stand out. Each story has its own cut out element that ties each theme together.
