Doctorow’s books are a mix of science fiction, fantasy and ethical dilemmas.

Using one of the photos from the fortheremix site ,  some simple text, and a brush for Photoshop I made a clean cover for a book, or even poster.  The original is in the 14X20 600dpi range, but the copy attached here is just a smashed down 3X4in version 72dpi.

I chose to obscure the subject’s face (Doctorow) to play into the ambiguity I wanted the viewer to begin to feel even before they began the book.  A glimpse into the mind f— blow they are about to participate in by reading the story.


Here is a LINK to a DOWNLOADABLE original.
