Well, maybe not quite the best book cover design in the world. It’s almost as if I’m attempting to drum ups some SEO results by optimising the words ‘best book cover design in the world’! Anyway, the last couple of months have been busy on the book cover design front and they have been some of the best titles that I have worked on!
The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window
First up is the book cover design for a new edition, to coincide with the recent film adaptation, of The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared. I can’t take too much credit for the design as the supplied art work was based on the film poster for the UK cinema release. The design of the film poster had already solved the issue of making such a long title work in the space. It was mainly a case of making the author’s name bigger and moving some things around to fit the book format. I designed the book spine and back cover based on the film art work. The back cover needed to work with the supplied text, quotes and film/publisher logos. It was a bit of a squeeze.
Other Book Cover Designs
In addition, I’ve worked on the design of a new book cover for the reprint edition of the The Best Book In The World. I’ve also designed covers for Why Did You Leave The Horse Alone? (a collection of poetry by Mahmoud Darwish), The Castle of Otranto (Horace Walpole) and Desperate Games (Pierre Boulle). I have also designed book covers for upcoming new editions from Hesperus Press of The Professor (Charlotte Brontë), The Chimes (Charles Dickens), His Family (Ernest Poole), Vera (Elizabeth von Armim), The Legend of Conan (Robert E. Howard) and The Wrong Box by (Robert Louis Stevenson). I shall be adding these to the portfolio section as they are published. It’s been a good variety of different titles and genres to work on, from classic fiction to gothic fantasy, dystopian science fiction and international bestsellers and poetry collections.
