Students who have opted for the Design component of the course will be asked to design a cover for a book that is scheduled to be published. The cover specifications will be provided by Pinaki De, who will also supervise the project. Students will be expected to work on the cover over two classes - pending confirmation from Mr. De, the classes will be held on 12 and 13 March 2013 respectively.
Please note that the project will require a certain amount of confidentiality. The terms will be explained at the start of the project. Moreover, the final selection of the cover will be done by the publisher, so all the covers designed will probably not be accepted. Students are advised to treat this as a training exercise in order to prepare them for other such projects if they take on cover designing as a career.
