Book cover resesarch

The competition brief i have chosen is to design a series of stunning contemporary book covers for a series of HG Wells books. Wells has been famous for his science fiction writing including 'The Time Machine' and 'War of the Worlds' but also produces some fantastic novels covering a series of social topics. As the brief requires the books to work as a set aswell as individually I have begun my research by looking at some of the HG Wells' series that have already been designed. What i like about the covers above is the neat border that runs along the bottom of each design showing instantly that they belong as a set. I also like the abstract images that have been placed on each one. the diverse use of colour, shapes and texture are visually interesting and work great together.
