This was an early project which expanded on visual principles and incorporated more advanced issues such as organization, hierarchy, layout and grid systems. I was to investigate multiple ways to communicate content and meaning of text in the form of creating a series of book covers for famous manifestos.

   The Echo of Time
—Book Covers for Famous Manifestos \\\\\\\\\\
The book covers are based on paintings from the time period of each book. For example, Common Sense shows a painting illustrating the Boston tea party event, while the cover of the Communist Manifesto shows a painting of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. The purpose of this set of book covers is to arouse empathy among people who appreciate art and literature at the same time.
