Book design development

November 10, 2010

I have been working on a set of book covers for the infamous spy novelist John le Carre.

I looked into the demographic I would be placing these and researched similar authors covers. One that caught my eye was Wilbur Smith, all his novels are styled in a similar way using epic landscapes with a vivid colour palette. I thought that I would experiment with this style to see where it lead.

I think that there is definitely room for improvement with these as there is little innovation, and nothing that makes them stand out from the sea of other novels out there. I am considering producing a limited edition set that could be released as this hasn’t been done before for le Carre. Back to the drawing board I think!
