The Tempest is one of my current book projects – taking part as the Design and Production module from my MA at Oxford Brookes University. We had to choose one of Shakespeare’s plays and create the cover of the book (paperback).
For this project, I have chosen The Tempest in order to work around the Sea Themes which are mainly present in this play.
I have imagined and created a very simple and graphic cover design. My ambition is to present a completely new type of book series within a collection that I have also imagined through this project.
I titled my collection Doctus Cum Libro (Learned with a book in latin) to highlight the innovative language of Shakespeare and correlate it with the literary aspect of classics books through a inventive book collection.
I also created other covers for the same play to illustrate the theme through different types of design.
