Last month book design blog 50 Watts ran an interesting contest. Contestants were asked to create their own book cover designs for their favorite novels or books, in the fashion of vintage Polish book covers featured on the blog. As an added bonus, this contest didn’t call for any type of entry fee, and I was eager to participate. I chose to design and illustrate a cover for the novel “Jailbird” by Kurt Vonnegut. I translated the title and the phrase “a novel” to give it that extra Polish flair. I was also excited to see my book cover listed in the judges honorable mention category of the contest. This was a super fun project to take part in, and 50 Watts is an incredible blog filled with volumes of inspirational visual material. A great experience all around.
