The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book

Using screen-printed pattern and photographic film, the design of these covers aims to illustrate the hidden background of colonialism present in the Jungle Book stories. This could not be done in too dark or complex a way as they are kid’s stories. At first, only the innocent animal patterns can be seen, but on closer inspection icons of the Empire are revealed to give the reader an inkling as to the wider picture taking place behind these children’s tales.
