Penguin Book Cover Design Competition 2019
Adult Fiction: Norwegian Wood - Haruki Murakami
The final design is inspired by the entire quote in different directions before, so it connects to the theme
of the book. Especially “Only the dead stay seventeen forever.” and “People leave strange little memories
of themselves behind when they die.” The design has two hidden infinity signs to suggest two fading
characters. It also reflects Japanese style via the circle and Japanese ink-like brush typography.
