Odyssey + Iliad 1.jpg

Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey

— is a conceptual redesigned publication inspired by the poetic storyline

The two books aim is to interpret the poetic poem written by Homer in modern society. The concept of my book cover is to demonstrate the poem through conceptual means such as the die cut lines on the dust jacket represents the intensity throughout the story. 


For The Iliad the nine lines represents the nine days that Achilles dragged Hector’s body around troy thus ending the long battle between the two combined with the black hardcover symbolizing the devastations that each character experiences, the death and destruction that comes from war.


For the Odyssey the 12 lines represents the 12 axes that Odyssey cuts through at the climax of the book combined with the colour red representing the themes of romance, love and betrayal.
