Great Expectations

For this task, I recreated the cover of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I took inspiration from David Pearson’s cover of Nineteen Eighty-Four. David Pearson’s cover took themes from the book and communicated that visually through a small change/addition. Great Expectations has many themes but the predominant one is becoming a gentleman in Victorian England. I used my template from The Great Gatsby to make the bulk of my cover and then created a small top hat on Adobe Illustrator to convey the theme of gentlemen in society in the 19th Century.
