This project was about making a typography-based book cover. The aim was to take some popular books and reinventing their covers. I chose two books. One is a Haruki Murakami book called “What I Talk about When I Talk about Running”. Since the book talks about running and training for a marathon, the image of footprint is used to symbolize the hardships and it is merged with the name of the book. The other book is by Julie Powell called “Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen”. An integral part of cooking is measuring and to represent that, the universal shape of a measurement cup is taken to depict this great story about the kitchen.
