Project Brief
A Confederacy of Dunces is a picaresque novel by American novelist John Kennedy Toole. The book refers to an epigraph from Jonathan Swift’s essay, Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting.

Concept
The style of the cover reflects back to graphics of old mechanic and pluming books. The tone of the cover reflects the filth within the setting of the book and the manner in which the main character represents himself.
