For my book cover, I chose to modernize the classic cover. I chose this background because of the pertinent role that the knothole of an oak plays in To Kill A Mockingbird. If Scout never would have found the items in the knothole, she may never have discovered the pureness of Boo. If her beliefs that he is evil would have lingered, she never would have connected the innocence of Tom, mockingbirds, and the man in the end of the story to the true innocence of Boo. I chose this message because these two themes are key elements in the novel. Overall, I chose this image and description to directly display aspects of the novel.
