Book Cover On The Chrysalids Essay

555 words - 2 pages

For my Independent novel study project, I chose to do a book cover on The Chrysalids. The cover of a book cannot target a specific audience; however, I constructed mine to target people in the age group 12-18.

Also, the horse and buggy team’s color (although it is not specified in the book) is the same as the helicopter’s colors. This is to symbolize that even though they are different in technology, some things don’t really change. One of the buildings is the same color as the farms, meaning that they have the same purpose, and the church is connected to a...
