The Big Sleep

Penguin books, book cover redesign. Design of a revised version of the book 'The Big Sleep', featuring both a typographic and image based version. For the typographic concept I used oil to depict the gritiness of the book and the underlying theme that oil was a main source of money throughout the book and how this is what people strived for. For the image based version I used the white knight chess piece to depict the good in the main protagonist and the oil to depict the mire that he is involved in, and the struggle between good and evil.
