new look for books / cover versions project

Go to the library. Chose a book with a bad cover and an interesting content. 
Design a new dust jacket for your chosen book. My choice: PAOLO FREIRE
Education for critical consciousness. The original jacket shows fish (on the left). 
My new jacket is a simple and striking typographic solution (Helvetica bold).
The changing position of the "O" is a symbol for the head and the change of
consciousness. Printed on sugar plant paper, which is rough and has a nice colour.
