Project Details

A book cover for The Sun Also Rises, a 1926 novel written by American author Ernest Hemingway about a group of American and British expatriates who travel from Paris to the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona to watch the running of the bulls and the bullfights.

This book cover is meant to showcase the themes of the roaring 20s and the duality of the time period, where on the surface there was a lot of partying and drinking, but underneath the individuals were lost and broken.

This project was inspired by Jessica Hische's Drop Cap Series for Penguin Books.
