In Cold Blood Book Cover Redesign Competition
As part of a University project I had to redesign the book cover for the classic In Cold Blood as part of the Penguin Random House Competition.
The brief: We are looking for a cover design which breaks boundaries in the same way that the book did. It should be bold, maybe even shocking, yet remain true to the book, reflecting both its literary merit and its chilling content.
In Cold Blood is regarded by many critics as the pioneering work in the true crime genre. It is a startling, true account of a gruesome crime and a skilfully researched piece of journalism – it is a literary masterpiece brilliantly imagined which reads like the most gripping of thrillers.
