For the Penguin Live Brief 2020; A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson was in the Non-fiction category. I wanted to do this book over the Fiction or Children’s Book as I am a lover of Non-Fiction, but I also wanted to try to make other people like it too. I have tried to make my cover design fun and interesting enough to open.
This book cover is digitally illustrated, of the Big Bang; the beginning of time. Expressive brush strokes and a rough touch to the design gives it a light look which is inviting but also sophisticated. This cover represents the feel of the book, factually true but fun.
