Banned Books

Book cover design

This is a series of book covers i did for 3 selected books from the 10 year Chinese Culture revolution period from 1966 - 1976. 

An Embroidered Shoe

The Second Handshake

Plum Party

Teared side

Since the books were banned, so people had to hand write it in note books and passed down hand by hand secretly, so it's less noticeable. So i made the side of the book a teared looking to mimic the original feeling. 


People were punished for reading banned books. So i made the slip case the old-fashion red handbook looking. When books are inside the slipcase it will show notebook. But when you take out the books, it will show banned books.
