Phenomena Publishers is a book publishing company that is
re-releasing some of the most beloved classics. At Phenomena,
they strive to make classic novels fresh and fun again for young
adult readers. Everyone knows the saying, “Don’t judge a book by
its cover”, but Phenomena Publishers believes the opposite. A book
cover should appeal to readers, and entice them to read the novel.
I decided to incorporate zentangle-style illustrations and fun hand lettered titles on each of the books because it will attract younger readers. The colors selected for each of the covers are significant or fitting for the novel in some way. For example, the Wizard of Oz is green because of the Emerald City in the novel.
