Covering the Classics

The Fox is Black is sponsoring a neat contest, in which he challenges folks to come up with new book covers for old classics. This is an early draft of my first idea. I've played around with the type a bit and I'm not quite sure if this is the right treatment. I can't do everything in Prima09, though, much as I'd like to. Right?

I like the subtlety of my approach here. It's very clean and soft, very contrasty to the gritty, disturbing story of Lord of the Flies. I like pulling off that sort of contrast when I can. It might be interesting to add a photographic element, perhaps of some idyllic tropical beach. Anyway, fun!
