Using Illustrator I created debossed effect to the title of the book and corresponding icons. Then a three dimensional effect was made to make the pearls of earrings. The other information for the summary of the book and the author was manipulated to reflect that of older book jackets with drop caps. The back of the book was manipulated to add emphasis and visual interest to the quotes about the book.
The results was a subtle effect to emphasize one of the key moments in the book that was a pivotal moment for the main characters.
