Mao's Last Dancer

Off-Screen Approach

"Mao's Last Dancer" is an autobiography written by Li Cun Xin, a Chinese former dancer who was recruited at a young age to leave his village and dance at Madame Mao's Beijing Dance Academy. In this off-screen approach brief, I designed the book cover drawing inspiration from traditional Chinese shadow puppets.
