A handmade project to redesign a book cover for the novel Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman, one of my favourite authors.

The full cover mock-up Project process shots! The typeface - what a good yarn

The letters and spiderweb are made using crocheted yarn, with the resulting shadows representing the themes of duality and illusions found in story, along with its mythological background.

A typeface was also made for all the letters of the alphabet using the remaining yarn. (There was a lot of yarn!)
