Custom illustration & cover design of J.R.R Tolkien’s epic trilogy Lord of the Rings. 

Drawing inspiration from Peter Jackson’s film trilogy the background cover design features the aesthetics of Mordor through the use of dark imagery and earthy textures.

To contrast with the Mordor background, the typography is printed in gold foil that symbolises the one ring theme as well as providing sophistication to the entire book cover design.

Each cover depicts a silhouette of a main character pertaining to each book – Frodo’s for the Fellowship, Gandalf’s for the Two Towers and Aragorn for the Return of the King. This provides a sense of  characterisation, within which then major story elements are then illustrated to create dynamic and detailed scenes befitting of the fantasy genre.

This project is a creative concept to illustrate my creative skills.
