Looking For Transwonderland - Book Cover Illustration

Granta Books commissioned Rod Hunt to create the book cover illustration for Looking for Transwonderland, Travels in Nigeria, Noo Saro-Wiwa’s tongue-in-cheek Nigerian travel guide. The idea was to communicate the vibrant, bustling energy of Nigeria and the traffic-clogged streets of Lagos, while framing things against the Transwonderland of the title, a decrepit & decaying amusement park.

Looking for Transwonderland won the Gold Book Award at The Association of Illustrators Images 36 Best of British Illustration Awards 2012
