Lark Press – Book Covers

A project set to us as part of my Level 1 undergraduate degree at the University of Leeds, the brief for this project was to create a series of book covers for four poets and their works. Taking inspiration from the works and poets themselves, I delved into the history of each author, picking out relevant and appropriate textures and images, before repurposing them with this ripped paper effect to create a scene from one poem for each book.

The books needed to work well as a set, set themselves apart from other works on the poetry bookshelf, but also remain 'poetry like' in their typographic and colour treatment.
