One Hundred Years of Solitude

I was asked to produce a wrap around cover illustration including typography for the 50th Anniversary edition of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Dutch Publisher Meulenhoff.

The cover features nine bird illustrations representing the novel’s main location’s description as ‘the city of the birds’ as well as hand written text which references events from the novel both in its literal content and as a nod to the obsessive notes taken by the one of the book’s main characters José Arcadio Buendía.
