Black & White Book Cover

Black and White is a book that portrays a dystopian society where racial stereotypes are flipped. The book written by Malorie Blackman is filled with an antagonism between two parties.

For this book cover redesign, I wanted to emphasize in the big gap between the two sides in society the book talks about. I made use of black and white as the name of the book and the accent colour yellow. The accent colour is energetic and bright, to represent the two main characters in the story which is a young couple in school who have been friends since childhood. It also represents the happier times and younger memories of said characters, before it all went grimly black and white.

The idea of the redesign was to create a book cover that is visually appealing and shows just a glimpse of what the story is about. Enough to spark curiosity, solely with typography.
