Primary French, Spanish and Irish Dictionary covers for Harper Collins.
This artwork was initially briefed for a '300 First Words' title which subsequently went on hold indefinately.
The client loved the street scene and decided to use it for the cover of the 'Very First French Dictionary'. This also meant I then needed to come up with a typical but stylised street scene for the Spanish and Irish titles.
These are the final font and backs for the French and Spanish titles.
It was finally decided that it would make a clearer cover to have more sky and give the text room to breathe.
As there was more sky and less detail to the background, I added a couple of additional details to give life to the scenes. Three small birds, front and back for the Spanish title and a pigeon taking off on the back of the French title. Also a jumbo jet in the sky.
The client were extremely happy with the series of covers.
