The Book Thief Book Cover
Daniel Portillo
University of Texas at Arlington

The Book Thief is a historical novel by Markus Zusak, narrated by death, it follows the story of Liesel Meminger as she discovers the power of writing and sharing the written word. For this book, I decided to design a cover that would represent the mystery of the book through a simple but strong concept. The hard cover is illustrated with a vast amount of detail, while the book jacket hides most of it in order to preserve the mystery of the novel and as an incentive for the audience to engage with the book.
