Student dustjacket designs on display at Alloway Library

"That Covers It" is the title of an exhibit of book-covers designed by students in Josh Hale's ART 362 - Symbol & Typography Design course. Students were challenged with redesigning and prototyping a new dust jacket for a book of their choice. The focus was on combining type and image to support clear and cohesive visual communication.

The results are a suite of new looks for books held in Alloway Library's collection such as The Hobbit and The Golden Compass as well as more recent and international titles like Divergent or The Westing Game.

The display, where visitors can compare (and borrow) the library's copies with the prototypes, will remain on the library's main level until the end of January.
