For further research for this project, I have decided to look at a few previous book covers for The Outsider.
These 2 are rather plain, rather boring. I don't like the 2nd book cover as I don't think it tells one anything about the story, and as I am sure that I am not the only one, I prefer a cover that gives some insight into the story.
The first one is rather plain but I do like the simpleness that this one has.
I really like the limited use of colours that has been used and what looks like, old papers printed on the book.
