The design of the 'y' made this design interesting. The branches of the tree adds movement to the design and includes a part of the storyline as well. The use of serif type makes the text easy to read.
Fahrenheit 451 (60th Anniversary Book Jacket). This is a book jacket I designed for the 60th Anniversary Edition of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. My concept is the idea of disconnect that is prominent on the book — the characters are disconnected from reality as well as each other. The cover also references 1950's data punch cards.
We tried loads of photographic approaches for this cover before arriving at this. I created this illustration as a last-minute entry to the Cover Meeting, and amazingly it ended up being the finished jacket. Here's the finished cover, plus a close-up of the illustration.
