Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland : an abstract book cover

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland : an abstract book cover

Over the past month or so I’ve spent too much time in bookshops. My conclusion is book covers are less than interesting at the moment. There are some exceptions, but overall it’s a sea of bland.

A recent purchase of a book on mid-century graphic design set me running down one of my proverbial rabbit holes. Some of the covers that appeared were bright, bold and eye catching. They demanded attention, not because they were perfectly crafted illustrations – quite the opposite. And so an idea was born.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the first to come out of this nucleus of a cunning plan. It’s abstract, imperfect and bold.

More will follow. Who knows, maybe I’ll get around to writing a book I can test these on.
