Students from Mount Alvernia College were recently invited to redesign a book cover. This could be the cover from their favourite book or a book they thought deserved a better cover than the existing one.
The calibre of the entries was extremely high, and it was a difficult competition to judge. A competition, however, requires a winner and it is with pleasure that we announce Madeleine Colclough’s redesign of Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell as the winning entry. Madeleine has produced a beautiful watercolour design for the cover and says:
“The original cover doesn’t tell you much about the story or its characters. I think if the cover depicted the characters more readers would decide to pick up the book. Especially since Eleanor and Park are such unique characters and different from one another – illustrating this would intrigue readers”.
Congratulations Madeleine, we think your cover design would indeed attract many readers to the book.
