Description
These book covers make up a series that address the status of 'banned books' in our society. Intended for future publication by Penguin Group, each title has been known to receive criticism from conservative groups, who believe they are unfit for young readers. By way of responding to this view, I decided to portray universal human conflicts and stereotypes in an unforgiving light. More image than type, I relied exclusively on a hand-made photo-montage technique to set the scene for each cover.
