OVERVIEW

An alternative book cover design for the first book in the "Song of Ice and Fire" book series, "A Game of Thrones".

OBJECTIVE

This was a project from my design studio course and the goal was to create an alternative book cover for an existing book. I decided that I wanted to evoke elements of shakespearean plays. There are themes of power, family, and political conquest woven into the novel's complex narrative; they are all relevant themes in shakespearean plays. I was inspired to make use of drapery as a way to embody the dramatic and brooding events that are depicted in the novel.
