Irvine Welsh Book Jackets

A trio of book jacket designs, these pieces are built with layered, expressively hand-rendered illustration of cryptic details from the twisted plots of Welsh’s claustrophobic works. The uncomfortable energy of each tensely constructed collage is tempered by the overlay of bleak, sans-serif, modernist type. This captures the dichotomy of the savage yet disconnected and disaffected world in Welsh’s uniquely nihilistic brand of literature. Jarring primal colors communicate each narrative’s intensity.
