PSYCHO AUTHORS BOOK COVERS
(Note: One of the clipping masks on the CF cover is broken and needs fixing--for now, just compare the general layout. Sorry. :P)
A unified series of three four-color hardcover book covers, built according to measurements taken from the book(s) to be used for modeling the final products. The covers must contain all the items required by a real cover, including ISBN code, price, publisher's logo, etc.
Client Name and Description
Black Butterfly Press--a new book-publishing company created specifically to print the work of authors and artists who have previously been only available online. Because money is no object, the company chooses not to appeal to the mainstream book-buyers, but instead prints work that could be considered edgy and controversial, hoping to reach isolated fringe groups.
To produce a unified series of book covers for the first series to be produced by the company. The intent is to create a design that fits the feelings expressed in the books, not necessarily a design that is conventional or appealing to everyone.
Mostly males (though females are not excluded) from approximately late teens through late twenties. They are intelligent, modern, broad-minded, and capable of deep thought, though they may also have a noticeable rebellious or indiviualistic streak.
