TILL DEATH DO US PART

ASSIGNMENT: Redesigning a cover for a collection of short stories

 

Genre: Fiction | Execution time: 2 hours | Softwares: Quark Xpress, Adobe Photoshop | Paperback

In this assignment, we were asked to redesign the cover for a collection of classic short stories titled, Till Death Do Us Part by Mahasweta Devi. Each story in the collection is based on inequalities in the society, rural women and their relationship with their partners. Since, these stories are based in Bengal, I chose to use two paintings by the artist, Lalu Prasad Shaw to effectively represent the traditional Bengali Babu and Bibi, maintaining the essence of Bengal. The three vertical dots on the cover have been used consistently as ornaments for typesetting.
