An Abundance of Katherines Cover Contest

Saturday, October 29, 2011
Penguin is putting on a cover contest for John Green's An Abundance of Katherines. You can read more about it here.

I entered Hannah Moskowitz's cover contest for Invincible Summer and came in second place (if I remember correctly)! And while this is on a whole different scale, the fact is, I love designing shit. So why not enter? I lose nothing by doing it.

I find when I start a new project, there's a warm-up period where I design a few things that are *almost* there but not quite. So today, I started playing around with ideas and thought I'd share them here.

It's important to note I have not read the book, so these are only based on the book's summary and previous covers. I do plan to read it before officially submitting.
