To take a break from the illustrated scenes, I began to work on the front and back covers. To start, I replicated the food illustration print 4 times to cover the whole of the page, leaving a gap in the centre for the spine. I then blurred out some spaces for the text I will be adding.
I added in the title and the by line.
I then added in the text on the back cover, and also added in the text that will go down the spine of the book.
I decided I didn’t like the text very much, so I changed the colours of the front cover text, using colours that i have use in the individual ingredients to match the text with the imagery, like I did on the recipe pages.
I also changed the back text, as I wanted to have more room to put an image on the back. This is also the text I have used throughout the book, so I thought it would tie the whole book together nicely.
I then added in the yellow strip for the spine of the book, to break up the covers. Again, I have taken the colour from the ingredients on the page.
I still have to decide on the imagery I want to include on the front and back covers, which will most likely be polaroids, maybe some food, and some of the care home I work at, I am yet to decide. Possibly a team staff photo?
