Penguin’s Banned Books
The project was a concept and package design, and covers for a series of banned books for Penguin Group. This particular series included The House of Spirits, American Psycho, Ordinary People, The Anarchist Cookbook, A Light in the Attic, and Slaughterhouse-Five. When considering the over-all concept and theme I thought, “if these are all ‘unacceptable’ books, what is the most is the most acceptable?” The Bible. Though, the individual covers relate to their own stories, the unifying theme used to design the back and package was the Bible. The package is a found Bible that was carefully carved out to the dimensions of the books. All the books can now be hidden within and no-one would be the wiser.
