I had a little fun with this assignment. The idea, take a well known book cover and redesign it to mean something completely different. I decided to play on the flip flop nature of Mitt Romney by creating this alternative cover to Fifty Shades Of Grey.
“Take a title of a well-known book and re-design the cover to suggest something entirely different. For example, the book cover for Cormac McCarthy’s The Road (an apocalyptic novel about a father and son facing the end of the world) is reframed as a feel-good book about effective parenting (see image). Original idea found through this design contest on Book Ninja in 2008. Image credit: Ingrid Paulson’s reimagining of The Road by Cormac McCarthy”-Submitted by: Jim Groom
