Children’s Book Cover Development


These are experiments from my A5 sketchbook developing an image for a series of three children’s book covers. Media used includes lino-prints, paper-cutting, biro, watercolour and ink. I found it difficult to choose a medium that was appropriate for all three covers, as the content of each story was so different. I chose paper-cutting because it has an element of precision that is satisfying to the eye, and it successfully portrays the content of the individual stories as well as tying the three covers together as a collection.
