Redesign Your Favorite Book cover

This is a 3 star assignment in which I had to redesign a book cover.  I picked this book because it was my characters favorite book. Isabelle McIntosh loves mysteries.    I made it the 65th Anniversary Edition because it was written in 1948.  I stuck with black and white because I think that that adds to the book cover.  It goes with the era it was originally printed in.

Three Blind Mice and Other Stories

This assignment is worth 3 stars.  I had to do one for my character so I did Grape Nehi, it is Isabelle McIntosh’s favorite drink.  I chose Betty Boop to advertise it because she seemed like a popular character at that time.  I used PowerPoint to create this, I had fun doing it.    Here is my advertisement.

Isabelle “Red” McIntosh in the future (Textbook form)

After solving many “unsolvable” crimes for the Chicago PD Isabelle “Red” McIntosh went on to a very successful career as a mystery writer.  She has written many award winning novels, but still maintains her job at the local library, where she works for free.  She is well known, and helps the police whenever she can.  She never married, but feels that her life has been well spent putting criminals behind bars.   She is sure that even at her advanced age she will solve the 1975 case of  the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa.

Isabelle McIntosh

It is Chicago in the 40s, and Isabelle McIntosh is a young, twenty-something librarian that doesn’t really call much attention to herself.  The only thing that stands out about her is her striking red hair, which has earned her the nickname of Red.    She wears a lot of black and enjoys staying in the background and just watching people.  Isabelle has many friends, but she isn’t really close to any of them.  She is a very intelligent young woman who believes that women can do any thing that men can do.   Her favorite movie is “Strangers in the Night”.  When she isn’t working at the local library she has her nose in a book, her current favorite is “Three Blind Mice and other Stories” by Agatha Christie.  There is nothing that she loves more than a good mystery.   Often when she is deep in thought she fiddles with her favorite four leaf clover pin that she always wears.  It seems to be a nervous habit and her friends know that she is in her own world when she has her fingers  on it.   Isabelle lives alone in a small apartment that is cluttered with books and newspapers.  Currently the only thing she has in her fridge is a few Grape Nihi’s and some left over french fries from dinner last night.  She usually just picks up something to eat after work on her way home.
