The Untrodden Andes

The Untrodden Andes is a book that tells the story of two men that take on the challenge of climbing the Andes mountains. It recounts their both their struggles and positive experiences throughout the journey. 

The cover conveys a sense of peace with plenty of white space, while also including an illustration of mountains, the most important aspect of the book's storyline. The goal is to give the viewer an escape and a sense of relief when finding this book in a store, similar to the feeling of reaching the top of a mountain. The black and white parallels with the contrast between an adventure's highs and lows, while the mirrored mountains are a connection to the two men themselves.
