To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper is Lee is considered as a modern day classic and is universally recognized. The use of a visual metaphor is evident within the front cover of this book design. A mocking bird has been positioned in the middle at the bottom and it is a representation of the major them that is omnipresent within the novel, innocence. The mockingbird also represents a number of characters Jem, Tom Robinson, Dill and Boo Radley. This book cover is simple yet visually impacting.
