For this project I created a set of book covers for the author William Boyd.
His books often feature characters that have moved across different countries and cultures, and focus on the effect of the characters' travels. I felt a good way to represent this across a series was to choose something that represents travelling and living across the globe. I chose birds as they migrate globally, just as the characters do.
The bird images are created through the monoprint process, as a result of using this process some areas of ink transfer onto the paper giving it this gritty effect, I decided to keep this as it reflects the darker elements in Boyd's writing.
