Alphabox Book Cover by hebazAtion Alphabox Book Cover by hebazAtion
This is a book cover I designed for a quirky short story by Jeff Noon called Alphabox, a mysterious and almost fairy-tale-like weird short story based on letters and their relationship to story-telling. In the book, a writer has his letters hand-delivered to him each day one by one, in a mysterious wooden box...
Some concepts I came up with for the book cover design of Alphabox centred on its theme of letters and words, and so I thought of using type in a very playful, graphic way to put forward the essence of the story - letters with a mind of their own, struggling to break free. I decided to use the concept of letters on a leash, or each tied up to hanging lines on the front cover, and on the back they would all break free. The author's name is designed to look like the shadows of the letters of the title Alphabox, but when you look again, you see that it spells Jeff Noon instead.
This peice bagged me a Graphic Design award at the Ibda'a Media Student Awards 2004 :)

I love that the author's name is the title's shadow, it's a really nice effect.
This is really nicely done.

i like this a lot. very raw feeling - but it works with the string and dangeling letters. very creative, very nice.
