Book cover design

Known mostly for his poetry, E.E Cummings also wrote four books. These books are an autobiographical source into the life of Cummings as a poet, author and artist.The purpose of this fictitious brief was to create cover designs that work as a collectors item to re-establish these forgotten books. The concept of the 'Undead Series' stems from the idea that these books were almost never published and are now being brought back to life. The word 'undead' was also featured in his poetry. Cumming's was known for literary quirkiness and creating new words.The language contained within these novels is quite hard to understand and so the rest of the book needed to demonstrate this. Through a minimalist approach, these contemporary covers hint a theme but do not give it away until the reader takes a look inside.
