This is a cover redesign for Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse. Taking place in India during the time of Buddha, the book documents Siddhartha's journey to enlightenment through self-actualization. I used the reoccurring image of the river as inspiration for both the medium and the palette for the dust jacket. The conceptual design of the introduction and first chapter reference the ebb and flow of man's journey to spiritual understanding. The text is broken with great intention in every line, emphasizing its profound meaning.
