The little prince
Drawing inspiration from the story of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. A book cover design was conceptualised with keywords extracted from the story to draw out design elements for the design.
This book consists of a saddle stitched 150 pages of 80gsm paper, book cover from 150gsm white tracing paper and a 100gsm transparency book sleeve.
Knowledge, imagination and fascination are the keywords derived from The Little Prince.
Focusing on each individual keyword exploration, the book design focuses on the cartography of a summer solstice constellation and Africa being in the centre of the design as with how the prince is found in the Sahara desert.
The Little Prince is a research and book design project taken under DV2005, Typography II in Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design and Media with Cindy Wang.
