Custom illustration & cover design of P.L Traver’s charming children’s classic Mary Poppins.
Genre: Children’s literature, young adult, adventure, historical fiction,
Audience: Children, young adults
Drawing inspiration from the 1964 Disney film, the title letter design was emulated from the typography on Mary’s tape measure while to appeal to young readers, an overall vibrant colour scheme of bright blues and yellows was applied.
On the front cover, Mary waits patiently as she approaches Cherry Tree Lane whilst contextual story elements such as London’s rooftops and subtle homages to chimney sweepers as well as a flying kite were added to the book design and background.
This project is a creative concept to illustrate my creative skills.
