SHIP OF DOLLS, DOLLS OF HOPE, & DOLLS OF WAR BY SHIRLEY PARENTEAU
Interior design & art direction for illustrated jackets for middle-grade historical FICTION TRILOGY
This middle-grade series needed an elegant and sophisticated look that was still approachable by young readers. The display text has an art deco style to reflect the time period while the text block is sweet and delicate. Each interior also has a different decorative element pulled from the jacket design. The jackets and their endearing portraits of the main characters, painted by Kelly Murphy, work wonderfully together while still standing out as beautiful in their own right.
