Posted @withrepost • @idwriters Book cover designs for two books written by Indonesian authors and translated into English by @mosoonbooks: Not A Virgin, written by @nurilkaka and Harvesting the Storm by John Waromi. We made two designs for each book (the unchosen one is called #killedcover, this is not a voting! 😅) with a concept in mind, that we wanted a dark, distinctive color palette while also maintaining simplicity and elegance. Each concept also shares similar backbone with different approach and styles of illustration.
For the first option of Not A Virgin, we used negative space to show a wing and a silhouette of a face of a man. This shows two sides of each characters, how desperately they want each of their sides to become a whole part of who they are but sometimes they can’t. (P.S. this correlates to the story!) and for Harvesting The Storm, we went a little bit more modern and simplistic by showing just the ocean and the coconut a coconut floating in the ocean.
For the killed cover, we illustrated a picture of an ordinary guy falling, with a silhouette of his wings for Not A Virgin, and we explored the traditional ornament style of a fabric that was included in the book, making and illustration of a tree with a coconut floating in the ocean for Harvesting The Storm.

Thank you for the opportunity, @monsoonbooks! These books are currently available in Waterstone and Foyles if you’re in UK, at Kinokuniya and at Periplus if you are in Indonesia!
