Penguin Classic Book Covers

The goal of this project was to design a series of book covers that encourage young adult readers to try reading Penguin Classics. This series provides a bridge to mature literature for those who have trouble letting go of vampires, wizards and mockingbirds. These four books have a teenage protagonist, drama, heartache, wanderlust, angst, and an exciting illustrated cover—everything needed for a top-selling young adult novel. The paper-cut illustrations show a mini 3D world that beckons the reader in. By showing a glimpse into the world of each story I hope to capture the viewer’s attention and pique their curiosity.
