After reading the John Hersey novel Hiroshima, I decided to create images based around the novel that could be used as book covers and or images to be contained within the book. The images depict the intricies of the consequences of the atomic bomb on hiroshima. The novel depicts a shrouded cloud of confusion, the rapture in understanding that was witnessed by the citizens of Hiroshima. I tried to bring this emotion through in my illustrations, capturing the moments in the novel that I believe best resembled this atmosphere.
