Interesting Book Design : Secret Garden
To celebrate Puffin Books’ 70th anniversary, the publishing house commissioned 6 art, design and style icons to re-design the covers of their favourite books.
My favourite however (book and cover design both) is Lauren Child’s artwork for Secret Garden: its a tangled web of vines, plants and trees that peel off layers by layer under the garden and the girl are revealed. It evokes the spirit of the story and invites the reader into a secret special world that only reading the book can unfold. As far as interaction design is concerned, it doesn’t get better or simpler or sweeter than this.
