Cover Design






This is the finished cover design for my Penguin Design Competition entry. I really struggled with how to represent the complex themes in One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. In the end a simple and graphic family tree seemed best, enabling me to choose some slinky typography to make it look grown-up. I'm rather pleased with it.

This is one of my favourite books. I love Marquez's writing and really should make an effort to read more of his books. Love your cover. The family tree is rather complicated to keep track of ...
