El Rey Arturo y sus Caballeros de la Tabla Redonda

Born in 1937, Austral is a Spanish publishing house which is a Grupo Planeta imprint, fuelled by the most universal and authentic backlist of all time.

They recently released a collection called Austral Intrépida which brings together the most emblematic books of children’s and young adults literature. This new collection has a special design which gives a value to the book as an exclusive object.

Their challenge was to create a cover for one of the new releases for this collection: El Rey Arturo y sus Caballeros de la Tabla Redonda (King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table).

As other titles of the collection, this cover should have a lettering as a main subject, accompanied by some illustrative elements related to the story in order to be attractive to the target audience (young adults).
