Pearl Book Cover
Pearl is a fictional novel based on the Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. This continuation of the story follows the life of Hester Prynne’s grown daughter, Pearl.
A mixture of classical oil paintings and typographic design was used to create the cover of this book. Using the instantly recognizable red “A” from the original source material, this design seeks to evoke imagery of sailing ships, a beautiful woman, her precious pearl necklace, and the red “A” of her mother’s past that continues to follow her into adulthood.
