Book Jacket

I started doing Book Jacket designs for an alternative publishing house in Goa called Goa,1556, in 2006. Since then I’ve been doing covers regularly for them, as well as other publishers and writers. I enjoy doing cover designs as every book cover poses a challenge in terms of design, I find that it comes closest to packaging design. A book cover has to stand out on the shelf at a bookstore, amidst thousands of other covers. Some of my covers are in jacket form with foldable flaps (dust jackets), while some are just front and back. I have posted some flats (opened out book jackets) and there is a whole gallery of book designs- which just show the front- as they would appear on a shelf.
