Nov 2022 - Illustration/Embroidery
This is a cover for Three Lives by Gertrude Stein. It was done as part of a brief for Stage 1 of my MDes in Communication Design at GSA. Since Three Lives is about three working-class women in the early 20th century, I wanted the cover to reflect the kind of labour of the time. The whole cover is embroidered on canvas stained with ironing marks and then digitally laid out. I also created a tablecloth-like pattern to extend into the flaps of the book jacket or as an end page. I tried to hand embroider as many aspects of the book as possible, including the main text, and the penguin logo.
