Fiction Book Jacket
Oftentimes, people do judge books by their covers. This book jacket was created for a fictional young adult horror novel. Original photography stands as the background, the content of the image (an old, run-down building), able to be seen, yet the exposure down enough to create contrast with the text. An expressive, red, hand-scrawled typeface represents the ominous feeling the jacket is meant to give. When a viewer looks at this jacket, they should be sparked with an uncertainty and an uneasy feeling. That’s the aspect of horror that draws people in and makes it such a popular genre.
