Over the past few months, I have been working on a project where I had to redesign the book cover for Animal Farm by George Orwell. When first getting my book, I had never heard of it. So before i could get into redesigning the cover for my project, I had to read the book. I am not a reader, so this came as a shock to me but luckily the book is not long.
After researching and experimenting with different outcomes for my cover, I decided to give my book a new look as the previous covers were mainly red. I wanted my cover to be in a glitch art style, not just because glitch art interests me but because I felt they was a connection between the corruption of the pigs mind in the book.
This is my final outcome for the redesign of the cover. I have applied my cover as well as endpapers and typeset pages to a book mock up. I am pleased with my outcome as I have not yet designed a book cover until now, it took me a while to get the right outcome but it was worth it in the end.
