My initial idea was to research books and find some ideas I would like to recreate on their covers, I went back through books I know and have read so that I knew what to create. I wanted to make the design from a book i know very well so I decided to look into the original book covers of these books as well as some re-imagined ones.
I decided on creating a Book cover for The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips because this book has a lot of different themes like war and the animal theme that comes with every Michael Morpurgo Book.
I searched more directly into War Books and saw a silhouette theme that I liked and I decided that was the route I wanted to try. I also ended up wanting to try and create a Peter Pan design of the same style.
