A conceptual cover proposal for the book The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan.

For this design, I emulated a Chinese motif by using a red and yellow color palette along with a background textured with Chinese characters and an elegant serif font. The cover image focusses on one of the main charcters, Kwan who has “yin eyes” meaning she can see ghosts. My approach to this design reflects the tone of the novel; mysterious, slightly sinister,
reflective, historical, and romantic.
