Book covers: Artist research - Stencils

As part of my experimentation for my book cover for George Orwell's 1984, I'll be looking at exploring the idea of continuing the stencil theme from my typeface homework across the whole cover.

Saul Bass: His movie posters are legendary for their minimalist, symbolic imagery and a bedraggled paper-cut like typeface. 


Matisse: I could take a look at the later work of Matisse for inspiration, which consisted of paper cuts.


Banksy: Maybe I could stencil over a wall like texture? Or maybe even cut into it...
