The goal was to take a boring book cover and make it interesting to look at. I had a book cover that was just grey and said on the side The Italian Renaissance. That is why this the cover is a smash up of 13 famous people of the Renaissance era in one of the most famous pieces of work from that time period. I also felt like making faded to fit the era more. I learned that downloading brushes makes life easier, because it took me seconds to do the design for the background. Also I feel like this gives a reader a good idea what its going to be about a lot people who did important things during this era.
