A journey across world literature through the redesign of book covers
The author Anna Quindlen said “Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.” And on that journey, each one of us has a unique personal experience.
The way in which we are drawn into the reading of a work that impacts us in some way, the emotion that it awakens within us, is at the heart of this project developed by Visual Communication students (4th year of Motion Graphics and Video).
Based on a selection of classic and modern works of world literature, the students have redesigned the covers of these books from a very personal perspective. The results, which reflect the creative universe of each of the participants, are being showcased in an exhibition for the members of our community on IED Barcelona’s premises for the occasion of Sant Jordi.
From ‘Crime and Punishment’ and ‘1984′ to ‘Twilight’ and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, the proposed designs are varied, but all share the common denominator of offering a fresh, original and highly personal vision of these works, while exploring the possibilities of Augmented Reality to bring them to life beyond the paper on which they are written.
