HORROR BOOK SERIES OBJECTIVE Popular classic horror books have been around for quite some time, and because of this its book covers have required reinventing to keep it up to date. Among some of the oldest books around; Dracula, Frankenstein, and Dr.Jekyll & Mr. Hyde were bundled up to create a classic horror book collection. A need for a contemporary look to unify these books while still giving it the feel of its classic horror aesthetic was essential.

APPROACH To keep an ominous tone to the books, an eerie color palette was kept to envoke a sense of fear and mystery. Targeting an audience of 20 plus, a minimal yet conceptual illustration was used. To provide the books with a cohesive scheme each book highlights the heroine of the story with an object that relates back to the main character. In order to give the book a classic feel a blackletter font of FF JohannesG was used. With its old style figures and condensed lettering, Johannes helped in the effort of making the books chilling.
