Cannery Row

The Objective

Re-imagine the novel, Cannery Row from cover to cover. This includes designing the front and back cover, spin, endpaper, title page, chapter break, and overall page layout.  

The Solution

Cannery Row is a story that follows many stories around Cannery Row in Monterey, CA. The main story follows Mac and the boys, a group of vagrant unemployed but very smart men who live in an abandoned shack and their experiences in trying to please a scientist named Doc. Because this book follows many stories revolved around Cannery Row, I decided my focus for the outside of the book should the pier on cannery row. The back cover is a metaphor to symbolize the vagrant men who are hidden in the shadows of society. Interval played a big part in my design choices because although the story changes throughout the book the location always stays consistent.
