A Different Mirror Book Cover

This class project is a book cover I made for Dr. Ronald Takaki’s: A Different Mirror. The book is a complete historical account of every ethnic group in the United States from their perspective. It is specifically designed to give historical context to the epistemic and social issues minorities go through everyday in the modern era and humanizes their experiences.

Since eye contact is one of the most important ways people connect and communicate, I wanted depict the eyes of all the different American ethnic groups to act the main focus of the composition. Eyes are the window to the soul and they are most symbolic way to show a person’s humanity. I also arranged the eyes to look like a distorted mirror room by using photoshop's perspective warp tool to play back to the book’s themes of perspective and reflection.
