Assignment: Create A New Cover!

IRSC Libraries need your help!

The Libraries hold over 100,000 eBooks in our digital collection. We would like to promote these titles to the college (especially our fiction collection), but some of the covers are old or just plain strange.

For this assignment, students will choose a book from the attached list, research the content and themes of the work, and create a new cover. The Library will then select several of the ‘remixed’ covers to be displayed in the library and on social media.

Have an idea for another form of media like a video trailer for a book, a banner for our social media, or a shelf talker for the library? We would love to see it! Just make sure you continue to follow the guidelines below, and see a librarian for approval.






  • 2D works must be at printable to 18x24

·         Your designs should:

      • Depict the story/author/character/plot accurately
      • Appeal to a wide audience of readers
      • Cite others’ work (if applicable) appropriately in an attached document.
