Want to play publisher for a day? Become an illustrator with this fun and creative project. Make a book jacket for either your favorite book or one that you read and thought could be represented better.
Take a minute to think about the book jacket designs that you have seen. How did the artist decide on the image and style? Looking at some of your favorite titles, would you have chosen the same artistic style, or description on the inside book jacket? What would you do differently? Keep the same? How important is the illustration and the book jacket description to you when choosing the book? Do you ever think about the book jacket summary after you have read a book? Was it accurate?
