After deciding I wanted to redesign a series of book covers, I was left with the difficult choice of which books?! I ended up choosing three of my favorite childhood books: Anne of Green Gables, A Little Princess, and The Secret Garden. To begin, I gathered images of existing covers.
I noticed most of the covers were an illustration/painting/photograph of a young girl. I knew I needed to do something different, so I wrote a list of imagery and important moments from each of the books.
Next, I created moodboards of three different visual directions.
I decided that the cut paper direction would be different than any of the existing covers I had seen, and would be a fun challenge.
