THE SANDMAN
BOOK COVERS

The objective of this project was to redesign two book covers from a series using only type as image.

The Sandman comics follow the journey of the character Morpheus, a creature older than time, who rules the Realm of Dreams. In Volume 2, The Doll’s House, the story features a terrible vortex and a feeling of vertigo, represented by the spiralling “O”s. In Volume 4, Season Of Mists, the story explores themes of imbalance and impending threat, represented by the imposing letterform “C”. The marbled texture and the dark colour palette represent the mysterious and surreal nature of the Dream Realm.
