Kallus Princess Bride

The book I chose is The Princess Bride by William Goldman. The book is a satrical fairy tail. About a princess named Buttercup and her one true love Westley. At the Beginning of the book Westley dies. And Buttercup is then soon engaged to Prince Humperdink. The prince want to start a war so he hires someone to kill her and stick in on the country across the see. The book is almost identical to the movie based on it because the author is also a screenwriter. He wrote Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid and the orginal Stepford wives.

For the book cover I did some mock ups of how I would want it to fold and the two shown are the best and most likely the easiest to execute.

My thumbs
One page number one the unfolded poster would be this map. And on the map there are all these places and things the main charcters encounter in the book. When folded it you would see only portion of the map and unfolder you would have the whole map. This one is my favorite.

#2 I though about doing the character illustrations and on the front cover you would have the tw main characters and then you would unfold it and more would be revealed.

#3 my least developed. I had a hard time putting this one to paper. The Idea would be to have all of these important objects just scattered as the poster. and when you fold it up you only get glimpsed of them.


  1. I like the idea of the map being the poster, especially with how many folds you're planning on having. One thing is, the type looks a little odd to me... It might be how far apart it is, but then again, I feel like if you had all three word of the title flush left it wouldn't bother me.


  2. I agree. I think the map idea is the strongest and would be the simpliest to execute. The folds work well with this concept and would correlate well from any stage of the reveal.
