A redesign of the classic story “The Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern’s Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure, The “Good Parts” Version” featuring 8 full-spread illustrations. Bringing in the quirky comedic feel through tapestry-inspired illustrations, the redesign aims on capturing some of the most iconic parts of the story. The cover, featuring Buttercup who plays both the princess and the bride, shows her depicted as a playing card – touching on her role as a pawn in the Prince’s scheme.
