For Class April 9


Have your book jacket illustration pretty much done. Consider the wrap, and what’s the story being told as the jacket wraps round to the back of the book? Your thumbnails should allow for the type. Consider a display typeface that represents well the tone of the book. During class, print out a draft of how your artwork is looking. Catch those poor contrast and legibility issues sooner rather than later.

Allow room on the back and flaps for the type. During class we’ll look at correct protocols for setting body copy.

Final crit for the book jacket will be the following week, April 16th. Given the generous amount of time allowed for this project, it should be perfect.
