This is a cover redesign for one of my favorite books, Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.
The story of Into the Wild is one of discovery, hardship, and the great power of nature. The first cover reflects the overpowering feeling one faces when surrounded by a vast forrest. The second cover lends more to the life of Christopher McCandless and the abandoned bus where his story ultimately comes to an end.
Both the bus illustration and title typography are hand rendered.
