Jhumpa Lahiri - The Lowland

Update 11/7:

Hi everyone! Just starting today and can't wait to dive in. I've seen many of my favorite books represented in the projects already, so I'm really excited to see how they all turn out. I decided to go with a book I've wanted to read since it came out in September, Jhumpa Lahiri's The Lowland

Update 11/20:

It took me a minute to read the book (fantastic, btw - perfect cold weather read). And these are my notes + initial sketch - very basic, just beginning to play with themes. 

The letter I chose to work with is L - both for Lahiri, and the lowland, which plays a pivotal role in the book. In this first sketch, I toyed with the idea of using a Bengali L in the background of the more prominent L. I don't know if I'll continue with that theme - obviously, hopefully the L will be more dynamic - but it's a start.

Update 12/10

Pre-lim sketches, testing out some ideas. Still trying to figure out how to add a Bengali element, so I might take a few of those to the next level.
