PHILLIP BLOCK


2019

Book jacket and campaign designed for Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami - with a theme of natural, cold colours and linocut patterns and illustration. The scratchy pattern on the cover can be interpreted as long, flowing grass or heavy rain, both features of important moments in the book. I chose to create a fold out lino-printed map of Japan and Tokyo, with labels for places visited by the characters, as travel and environment are so important throughout the book.
