    Directions:

    1. Look at least five examples of book jackets before beginning this project.

    2. Using construction paper of whatever color you wish, design a book jacket which will be folded like

    the picture above. Cut the paper any size you wish. Fold it like a real book jacket (see sketch above).

    3. You may use the computer or create your book jacket by hand or use a combination of both.

    4. Design your book jacket so it includes the information generally found on a book jacket (see information above)

    5. Be original! Be creative! Use color! Use your imagination! Have fun!
