Re-Covered Books: ‘Lord of the Flies’

Re-Covered Books: Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies

When I was in high school one of my favorite books, hands down, was Lord of the Flies. Written in 1954 by William Golding, the book takes a look at human nature and how we act when we lose the constructs of civilization. It was easy for me to imagine being on trapped on that island, but I was never sure which side I would be on.

I figured this would be a good book to take on for our second round of Re-Covered Books. The first contest, featuring The Great Gatsby, was a pretty great success and there were a lot of really beautiful entries from people around the world. A book like Lord of the Flies is filled a ton of really great imagery and plenty of visuals to inspire your creative process. As with last time the prize is a $100 Amazon gift card and having your work featured on the site. I’ve also made some modifications to the rules so please take a look below.

• Your images must be no larger than 800px wide at 72 DPI, no height restrictions (within reason). Feel free to play with the dimensions and have fun with what you make. Making a front and back cover with certainly help your chances but is not required.

• Send all entries to [email protected] with the subject “Re-Covered Books: The Lord of the Flies“. Just cut and paste what I wrote there. It’s super easy and it helps me keep track of entries.

• All entries are due February 25th, 2011 by Midnight, PST.

If there are any other questions feel free to leave them in the comments. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with and be sure to tell your friends if you think they’d enjoy being a part of the fun. Good luck!
