Animal Farm
Hardback Edition Book Jacket
(with guidelines for folds)

Pig from Animal Farm character design Animal Farm Book Cover redesign for both a special edition Hardback Book Jacket and an alternative Paperback version.

I wanted to give the Animal Farm book cover a more edgy and modern look.  The book is often read in senior school with young adults and I wanted the cover to be eye catching and appealing to them too.  I used red on the covers to hint at the communist events during the Stalin era before the Second World War which the book reflects.

The pig characters I designed to look slightly crazed, like dictators and not the friendliest of farmland animals.
