The Big Sleep – front cover design for Penguin

Fiona Clabon

“The image inspiration for my cover was taken from a description in The Big Sleep about the appearance of the detective. Using collage and hand printed papers I created a cover that is not only bold and eye catching, but also fits with the fashion and Art Deco movement of the time through the use of strong colours and clean geometric lines. The pieces were cut out of these papers, scanned in and edited to compile the complete image.”
