Recover A Classic: Catcher In The Rye

For this assignment, it was to recreate a cover for a classic book. I chose one of my favorite books, The Catcher in the Rye.

I was really excited to create a cover for this, because the book really means a lot to me on an emotional level and I wanted to be able to create a cover for the novel that I personally feel represents the concepts and theme of the book.

I chose to use a picture of a teenage boy, smoking a cigarette (as Holden did as well, throughout most of the novel). I also wanted to include the amber fields of rye, as Holden mentions throughout the novel.

Going through this process, I felt I was creating something that really represented what I thought the book was trying to tell audiences. I believe I did a good job of this 🙂
