Design Rationale

The brief was to reinvent this classic title with a contemporary look. I used a strong orange as a feature on the cover, head and tail bands, and endpapers to contrast against the parchment background. The beautiful pencil illustration tied the cover to the internal pages whilst conveying personality and a sense of whimsy.
