A Book Cover Like You’ve Never Seen

Have you ever walked through the bookstore and seen a book with a GIF playing on the cover? I bet not! If you have, please tell me what book! We’ve all seen the books that if you tilt them back and forth the image changes, but it’s not a GIF!

A few weeks ago, I created a book cover for California by Edan Lepucki. However, it was not a GIF! Here’s the original!

Now, I have created a new cover in GIF form as part of a 5-star assignment! I tried to stick with the same theme of having husband-and-wife duo, Frida and Cal, on the front cover, but also added a twist at the end! Enjoy!

In order to create this GIF, I downloaded and compiled two videos from YouTube.

  1. “Sunset – A Short Film From Joshua Gow” 
  2. “VHS Static Noise”

To finish it off, I added the “Sci-Fi” filter over the first video! If you’ve read California, let me know what you think! Even if you haven’t read it, let me know what you think!
