Ernest Hemingway Book Jackets

Ernest Hemingway Book Jackets

Book jacket series of Ernest Hemingway's most well-known novels "A Farewell to Arms", "The Sun Also Rises" and "The Old Man and the Sea"  Hemingway’s writing style is simple, direct and unadorned and his novels are ofter semi-autobiographical. My idea was to apply these factors to my book covers by portraying Hemingway from the year he wrote the specific novel and, somewhat carelessly, paint on him. The doodles give hints of the inside; the symbols and the plot.   I wanted to create a clash between these world-renowned classic novels and Hemingway’s modern way of writing with a bit of humour.
