Last year I was once again asked by Penguin Random House to design a book cover for 'King Solomon's Mines' as a part of their 'Puffin Classics' range. It was a super fun project to work on, trying to capture a sense of adventure and discovery to match the book.
Super rough idea sketches
A couple initial layout options
Left, very rough colour sketch - right, a neater version
Process for the final
Custom type for the cover & spine, drawn up in Illustrator based on sketches
Four colour options - they went with the bottom left
The final book cover
