Shadra Strickland's Sophomore 2 students present a selection of newly designed book covers. These fanciful and detailed projects show the use of varied printmaking methods to create eye-catching jackets for your favorite novels and stories.

Students were introduced to four different techniques: mono print, transfer mono print, stenciling, and linoleum printing. Each student was asked to complete a book cover of their choosing using one or more of the techniques. All the covers are at least 50% printmaking.

On both levels we have featured the final book covers, as well as drafts and working materials, including carved linoleum blocks and stencils from selected designs.

Students whose work is featured include:

Kim Best
Shana Buckholtz
Tina Oh
Katherine Souza
Evangeline Gallagher
Brittany Kanabar
Gloria Wan
Terrell Sleeter
Casey Leach
Hannah Imel
Ashanti Fortson
Maddie Salapow
Ling Hu
NIh Luu
Jordan Purnell Jackson
Em Goheen
Emily Roberts
