the invention of morel | BOOK JACKET DESIGN
Using Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, I designed a book jacket for Adolfo Bioy Casares' famous novel,  "The Invention of Morel," with the goal to creating a visually appealing design that effectively communicates the message of the book.
"The Invention of Morel" is a novel about a fugitive who flees from civilization to live out his remaining days on a secluded island. He documents his experiences in a diary, recounting the unexpected arrival of tourists, and his interactions with a woman named Faustine.
For my design, I used a silhouette of a man approaching the silhouette of a woman who seems to be dancing on the island to convey the idea of the fugitive growing affections towards Faustine; and to match the book's mysterious and eerie atmosphere, I used a subdued palette of gray and blue tones. Additionally, I incorporated a ripped torn-paper effect, underlining the fugitive's diary entries throughout the novel.
