The Two Princesses of Bamarre is a warm, fun adventure full of fantasy and excitement. For my redesign I wanted to create an illustration that was lively, bright, and exciting – just like the story itself. Though Meryl is sick through most of the book, I depicted her more adventurous side, as that is an important part of the story, giving Addie courage on her journey. Meryl holds her sword and Addie has her embroidery to hint at their contrasting personalities. I initially depicted Bamarre’s landscape in the background but ultimately cut it to put more focus on the sisters and create a sweeter, princessy look.
This book design was created as a personal project.
