Book Jacket Series // Final Post

When first approaching this project, I stared off with some books that I thought has appropriate subject matter and contents that matched my icon set story. The story Vision Quest involved the journey of a young native american boy that went to find is power animal to then take over and become chief.

If you click on the image below, you will be able to see the changes made throughout each phase of the project.

1:2 Involved considering a symbolic image for the back of the book cover. For a book about spiritual rituals and beliefs, I chose to use dirt. Ground from the earth makes the connection and has the connotation of growth, roots, and nutrient.

2:3 I messed more with the typography and took more care in being able to explain the banner on the front page. The tan icons on the front page turned into a purple icon, to match my icon set color.

3:Final Even more care in the consistency of measurements and typography was taken. Also, the four icons on the back moved to the front, the icon became a backdrop for the information text. The single icon on the front was deleted and just highlighted in the row of four icons by color.
