The Picture of Dorian Gray

Book Design

The Picture of Dorian Gray is a classic novel in which Oscar Wilde illustrates the impermanence of youth and the shallow facade of Victorian society. Using those dark and beautiful themes as Inspiration, I created a book jacket and accompanying interior pages for a hardcover book. The combination of a sleek serif, saturated floral imagery, and bold red accents, communicates to shoppers the sophisticated yet eerie and beautiful content of the novel.
