Book Cover Inspiration

To get an idea of what type of book covers are out there I decided to find some book covers.

All these covers are rather boring, and show either abstract shapes of silhouettes. It doesn’t really give me any clue on what the book is about. Then I remember something that a cohort showed in class once, Jay Z autobiography ‘decoder’ and the cover was an Andy Warhol piece.

This made me think of the Rorschach test that is a known psychology test. I think this makes great inspiration as I have more abstract freedom and can consider putting the title of the book within the ink blot, or maybe an image of the top of a brain to portray that this book is about the psychology of memories.
