The Odyssey and The Lliad – A Modern Take


  • RMIT University


My aim was to interpret the poetic poem written by Homer in modern society to fit that in an A5 sized novel. By being inspired by poetic book covers I decided to take on a more conceptual idea of illustrating the contents of the books. The idea of the die cut lines that run through the dust jacket is to tell the story and how the intensity in the book carriers through. It is also meant to represent the idea of how the books first came about as a story told rather then read.
