When redesigning this book by Douglas Adams, I wanted to capture some of its fun energy and brooding mystery, as well as the formality of the Brits in the 1980s. I went with a traditional typeface of Century ITC, as the name of the font also plays off the time travel motif within the novel. The cover was painted digitally using an iPad and Photoshop. My biggest challenge with it was getting the rain to be noticable but not distracting from the other elements of the composition.
