designed by FBA : I drew from this an idea I have been toying with for my bookshelves. I can run book jacket blanks through my printer: white book covers add a color stripe for each genre and subject (yes, I still value my college books), for a bright and cheery re-do of what has become a cluttered mess. I really like this idea.
Fahrenheit 451 (60th Anniversary Book Jacket). This is a book jacket I designed for the 60th Anniversary Edition of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. My concept is the idea of disconnect that is prominent on the book — the characters are disconnected from reality as well as each other. The cover also references 1950's data punch cards.
The design of the 'y' made this design interesting. The branches of the tree adds movement to the design and includes a part of the storyline as well. The use of serif type makes the text easy to read.
