1Q84 Book Cover

Class / Typography 2

Objective / Redesign a book cover using creative techniques to spell out the title. 

Solution / Because 1Q84 is centered around a book called “Air Chrysalis”, the idea of butterflies came to mind. Origami butterflies made sense because the story takes place in Japan. I folded the butterflies and arranged them to spell out 1Q84, then photographed it with the shadows in natural light. The green color choice helps communicate the strange science fiction nature of the story. The simple type compliments the photography.
