“One Hundred Years Of Solitude” book cover for Penguin Book competition

The task was to illustrate the richness of the author’s words via visualising the story using the roots of a growing tree as a metaphor to representing the families of the story, and the development of the generations. Toward the end, the tree withers and the branches take the form of the child which concludes the family’s legacy. The dying roots take the form of death in their intertwined state.
