I first read Lord of the Flies by William Golding when I was in high school. As is the case with many great books I've read, it was required reading for a literary analysis paper (which, call me weird, I always liked). I wasn't super impressed with the story at the time, but as an adult I have come to appreciate it so much more.
Lord of the Flies chronicles the ventures of a group of ordinary young boys who have been marooned on an island. Without the rules of normal adult society to govern over them, carefree fun soon turns to chaotic panic - and the boys pay the price for that.
I love books that are rife with symbols, and Lord of the Flies is certainly one of those books. Designing this cover was really fun because I was able to play with some of the symbolic overtones of the story. I currently only have a coin purse available in this design, but I would happy to make a wall hanging, purse, laptop sleeve, or anything else you can think of! As always, feel free to contact me if you have any inquiries or requests.
