The Sleuth: A Senior Narrative Book Jacket by Mia Montanez (2014)
My book is called The Sleuth, a coming of age novel about an adolescent bear's life changing birthday. I wanted to reflect a teenager's relationship with their parents, and how sometimes something negative must happen to show you how loved you truly are. I made my whole jacket in InDesign, using one of my own photos on the cover; which I edited using Lightroom. The biggest issue I had was unifying my colors to make the book aesthetically pleasing. I used a rather serious photo of myself with a silly bio to reflect my versatile personality. Overall I enjoyed making this book jacket and find not only the template but the experience rewarding.
