Final Book Covers Ideas
For my final book covers, I wanted to capture the southern grittiness that William Faulkner's writing is known so well for. I thought the best way to explore this idea would be through experimenting with dirtier textures as a way of communicating the rawness of Faulkner's narratives. As a result almost everything, minus a portion of A Mountain Victory's cover, was all done by hand. I felt like hand making the images and text not only fit well with the context of Faulkner's stories, but it also helped in creating consistency between each of the book covers.
