The Hobbit 75th Anniversary Edition



This was just a book cover assignment for school, but for me it meant a lot more.

This new curvalinear style you've seen me doing was originally inspired by several things, most importantly this painting by J.R.R. Tolkien. [link]

The Hobbit is probably my favorite story of all time. and has been extremely inspiring and influential to my work.

So here is what I think would be an awesome cover to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this epic tale.

Hopefully I don't have to explain it, but my intent was to make the title an ambigram and make the 4 corner words (spelling out the less well known full title of the book) rotate encouraging the viewer to actually rotate the book and literally go "there and back again"
