The design for the book cover and interior of the novel “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” by Kate DiCamillo is based on the protagonist’s connection to the stars. The cover features a blue landscape with a starry sky and a mixed-type wordmark with Edward’s name “written in the stars.” The inner matter uses a legible serif typeface for the body text and a flowing typeface for chapter titles that complements the constellations featured in the illustrations.
The design creates a cohesive and comfortable reading experience that reflects the antique and aged feel of the story. The illustrations represent every aspect of Edward’s journey and tie in with the theme of love and the experience of the darkest darks and brightest whites of the stars.
