We were given three different art movements, Art Nouveau, Plakatstil, and Bauhaus, and were challenged to create a book cover in each of these styles to create a three-piece series. Throughout the semester we learned the characteristics of each
of the styles. 

Art Nouveau often focused on nature, incorporating a lot of arches and curves. Plakatstil focused on very simple images, often with a lot of contrast, and even use of negative space. Finally, Bauhaus frequently used a lot of shapes and lines with minimal illustration.
