Penguin Book Covers Submission

These are my Penguin book covers for the book titles ‘Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit’ and ‘Carrie’s War’. The Penguin Design Award is an opportunity for students on a Degree or HND Art or Design course to design book jackets and win a work placement within the Penguin or Puffin design studio

Carries War

Carries War

This book cover is built upon brown parcel paper which is a visual metaphor of the journey the children took, who where sent away to the countryside. The protagonist  Carrie is portrayed on the front cover cradling a skull. This reinforces one of the major themes, death.

Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit

Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit

This book cover uses negative space to play on the imagination of the viewer. This negative space is a visual metaphor of purity which contrasts against the coy red of the raincoat. The use of the bible reinforces the ideology of the theme religion within this novel.
