This past season, I taught a creative writing class for tweens and teens that took inspiration from art history.
I described many of those classes, activities, and inspirations on this blog. The result of all that hard work by the students was that they each were given the opportunity to make their own book. That included not only producing all the words for the book, but any illustrations and artwork—including the front covers.
Here are the final covers that the students came up with. They did the artwork and I helped them with the design and typography.
The books are professionally printed with perfect-bound spines. Yes, I’m biased, but I think they turned out pretty well!
