Alt Cover Art Contest: L'Etranger (The Stranger) by Albert Camus

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 North Main Street Gainesville, FL, 32601 United States (map)


Third House Books presents its first Alternative Cover Art Contest. This year is the 75th Anniversary of the publication of Albert Camus's L'Etranger (The Stranger), one of Kiren's favorite books. Your challenge is to come up with your own original cover art for the novel. All entries will be displayed at Third House Books for ArtWalk on June 30th and will remain in the store for the month of July.

On the night of ArtWalk (June 30th), there will be open voting for the public's favorite cover. The winner will win a portion of the contest entry fees (at least $100) and a $25 gift card to Third House Books.

- Entry Fee is $25. This also gets you a free copy of the book to read for inspiration. (If you cannot afford this fee, drop us line or come talk to Kiren and arrangements will be made. Afterall, art is for everyone).
- Deadline to enter is June 15, 11:59PM.
- All cover art must be completed and delivered to Third House by Wednesday, June 28th, so that we have time to frame and hang the pieces.
- You must be a local artist, i.e. you must have some way of delivering your art to the store. You do not have to be in town the night of ArtWalk.
- You will be given guidelines (size restrictions) when you submit your entry fee.

Pass the word on to your friends and support local art!
