Cover design for France by Andrew Whittaker

Overview   Process  

Task: to design a cover for a book on France in the Speak the Culture series.

Every Frenchman was raised with the conviction that France is the only country on Earth worth living. The book helps the readers immerse themselves in the culture of France, grasp the soul of the nation and understand what it means to live in the country whose land was trodden by Cézanne, Camus, de Gaulle and Bardot, and to achieve inner understanding of France and Frenchness.

The cover

Speak the Culture is a series of affordable and beautifully illustrated books on culture of different countries. Each book is the shortest way to understanding national culture and an example of an entirely new approach to travel books.
