Illustrations for Picture Book

book illustration student project

Today I would like to show you the illustrations created by Victoria G. a very talented student from my publication design class here at Palm Beach State College. For this project students had to pick a short story, illustrate and lay it out as a book. 

The typography on the cover has a wonderful feel very akin to Victorian cameos.

The silhouetted images and layers of grey almost give a feel of hand cut paper.  The book has  warmth, a weave of textures and layers that engage me and entice me to keep flipping through the pages.  Nicely done Victoria, keep up the good work.
