Sports Books

This assignment was to make some book covers for 4 related sports. I chose weapon related sports, which are archery, javelin throw, fencing, and sharp shooting.

I wanted the books to have a somewhat nostalgic feel because all of the sports began with a history in warfare and have progressed to modern leisure activities, and olympic worthy competition.

I used a method of layering images to create texture and movement in the covers, kind of like double exposures in film photography. I then used hand drawn text and silhouettes of the weapons to label the books.
