Book Design – Computer Graphics

You will soon be embarking on a book jacket design project.  You will be exploring three different approaches to your book jacket design: type only, illustration and photography-driven.  You will have to explore these three ways of designing a book cover, so you will want to be familiar with the story and characters of your chosen book.  Please explore the following links to get inspired by great design!
