Book Cover Designs
The inspiration for the Bette Davis Biography cover was classic cinema with a modern aesthetic. The typography was mindfully designed to reflect the golden age of cinema as was the photograph chosen for the covers and spine. I purchased many authentic photographs of Bette from a shop in Manhattan until I found the right ones.
The JD Salinger novel depicts nine short stories staged during the post WWII era. The people experience many twists and turns while their lives intersect. The kitchen table cloth image represents a by gone era where the kitchen was a focal point for family interaction. The burn mark represents life gone awry.
The cover design for The Accident describes a mysterious bicycle accident that occurred on a busy street somewhere in China where the bicycle parts were thrown about.
The Roads to Home is another post WWII novel depicting stories of family ties and the journey back home. The ethereal photo with the filmstrip edging symboizes memories and time passing.Bette Davis Biography – Iterations
