A redesign of A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.
A Darker Shade of Magic is an adventure of a magician and a thief in four parallel Londons: white, red, gray, and black. This book cover redesign captures the different Londons and each stacked on top of one another.
A starving world where magic is abused and color and joy drained.
The background represents White London.
A copious world flourishing with magic and prospers with the help of magic.
"MAGIC" represents Red London.
A mundane world where magic is forgotten, and magic is scarce.
"SHADE" represents Gray London.
A dead world crushed out of life and consumed by its greed for magic.
The word "DARKER" represents Black London.
