senior: book cover assignment 4

for our fourth book cover project we were asked to pick a series of books to design for. this could be a books by the same author or books that belong in sequence, which is what i did. the series is called His Dark Materials and it features The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. the trilogy is by Philip Pullman and it's one of my favorites. It's an untraditional fantasy story following a boy and girl and their journey through different parallel universes. the story is based around Milton's Pradise Lost, which, in my opinion, elevates these books from being exclusively young adult books, to ones appropriate for all ages. they can be very dark and contain symbolism and social commentary throughout. the covers i did rely on a knowledge of the characters and events, but i think that they contain intrigue.
