The Great Man Book Cover

]This book cover is a redesign of the book "The Great Man" by Al Morgan. The purpose of this project was to redesign the Great Man's book cover in the artistic style of a chosen artist, mine being Alexey Brodovitch. I tried to keep a clean black and white style for the the cover because a majority of Brodovitch's work is black and white. I involved the use of photographs since Brodovitch was also a photographer. I used the text contouring on the back of the book to imitate his type style. This cover was kept with a 1950s influence based of the book being written in 1956 and Brodovitch working with Harper's Bazaar Magazine from 1936-1958.
