- Balanced type and illustration, neither overpowers the other

- Two colour, simple and effective

- Shaped based illustration
- Three colours including stock
- Draws attention to the symbolism of the Mockingbird
- Text clear and easy to read

- Line based illustration 
- Emphasis on text
The childlike illustration links to the themes of childhood and innocence

- Black silhouette illustrations 
- Title of the novel is combined into the illustration

A lot of the covers I've been looking at include that symbol of the mockingbird, perhaps because this symbolism is integral to the story. I think it's definitely something that I'd like to try and incorporate into my own designs, along with other possibles imagery/symbolism from the novel.
