The cover for The Folio Collection of Ghost Stories. I went with a visual of The Tale of an Empty House for the cover. As bindings/covers for folio society books use 3 colours (cover and 2 print colours) I designed it to that format.
The book material would be the dark blue as depicted below with an off white and dark grey as the printed colours.
I tried some different colours for the background thinking the current one would be too dark and to see if there was a colour that might suit it better.
I decided to go with the dark green/teal colour. When it came to placing the text on the spine, I realised the small house on the spine interfered with the text so I removed it.
