The following set of book covers is a personal project, in which I decided to unite three works written in the twenties by three American writers. 'Down and Out of Paris and London' by George Orwell, 'A Farewell to Arms "by Ernest Hemingway and 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz' by Francis Scott Fizgerald are three pieces that reflect –from different perspectives– upon contrasts relevant to this decade full of war and peace, happiness and sadness, but mostly poverty and wealth.
Front and back covers play with this contrast, referring to another entity of the decade: the Bauhaus. The main forms of this school, –triangle, square, and circle– were assigned to each text, to take up the most symbolic object of the narrative. The bread for Orwell, the diamond in Fitzgerald and for Hemingway a grenade.
