This project was a little harder for me than the other ones. It took me a while to come up with ideas for how to set it up. I'm happy with it for the most part. I wanted my contents page to be different than most magazines but still work. I like the layout but I could have added more text information. My cover came together pretty well. I wanted it to look like a legit magazine cover and I'm not sure if I succeeded. I didn't put a big title on my article which I should have done... don't exactly know why I didn't realize that because on my first draft of the magazine I had done that?! Anyway, overall I'm pretty happy! Let me know what you think! Thanks!

I didn't really like how my first one turned out so I went to the cemetery to take some more pictures and put an actual book down and put it together the way I wanted instead of trying to photoshop in a million different things. I got some really good pictures from that shoot and put it in the layout of front and back cover instead of trying to design 2 separate ones. This picture is the one I decided to work with!
BOOK COVER!! I decided to make a cover for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. My initial idea was to have a big bonfire type thing burning a bunch of books and a little girl running away with one of them but that kinda gives away more of the story than I wanted. I then had the idea of doing a scene from a graveyard. soo... this is my first attempt at that..
