To create a hand lettering tittle book cover for one of the most famous fictional novel called, A Christmas Carol. The cover must have a Christmas spirit and an iconic figure that represents Scrooge - the main character of the novel. The dark shade of red is chosen as the theme color because it associates with Christmas, also helps bring the festive and christmas spirit to the readers. Instead of drawing Scrooge on the book cover, I chose to only draw his hat because not only that it is less direct and mainstream; it is also very strong yet simple. The extremely cursive hand lettering title makes look Christmasy and vintage. Swirls are also used quite frequently to enhance the Christmas theme of the book cover.
