From my research I have come with a several of books penguin covers and all this examples really inspired me to do an “silhouette illustration” for my book cover design.
For example on the first, second and third image are kind of an illustration, print, and silhouette image with a green background to stand out the image using a classic layout using a black and white font where it does seems to be a smaller font but it means to understand the image and title at the same time.
Forth book cover it’s a classic book using a cut out photograph with a visible white print on top of the red background which looks simple but creative too combining with the title and the penguin logo on the left hand side.
The next 3 blue books examples are my favorites because as I said for my final I would like to experience something with outline or a silhouette illustration.
These books seems to gives the curiosity and mysterious showing a white illustrated girl in the middle of the front book cover with big large font at the bottom of the “white illustrate girl” and the name of the publisher on the middle top.
On the spine has the name of the publisher and the title of the book all in vertical including the penguin logo at the bottom of the writing.
For the back cover blurb it’s central and right along the illustrated image but don’t seems to be match for my opinion I would rather to have a nature design but I agree with the colour font that suits with the front cover book.
For the last 3 books examples in a white background with a print and illustrated image seems to be interesting and delicate as the title of the book. I love the way it’s created and using the illustration till the spine and back cover using three font colours as red, white and black which stands out all together.
The last image seems to be an silhouette images in black located in the middle of the front cover with a large font white title and the publisher at the bottom of the image including the logo on the right hand side.
This means that logo and title and the publisher name can be change in any position as long its clear and accurate with the image position.
