Book cover design concept for Ralph Ellison's novel, Invisible Man. This design draws on a powerful and symbolic scene from the book where the mixing of black and white paint alludes to racial dynamics in American society. The expressive and murky typography reflect both the imagery of this visual and reinforce the somber and serious tone of the story. The underlying graphics work as an extension of the typography, and unite the cover, spine, and back in a cohesive composition.
