Judge a book by its cover - a radial tree by Viktoriia Yuzkiv
This work is an example of data art and design application in publication graphic design. It shows how programming may be applied in a book covers generation.
The approach shows how two characteristics extracted from a book – its structure and a text polarity score – are used to create a book cover in a data-driven way.
A radial tree method is used to display a tree hierarchy, so the layout at every level is represented radially where a root is a book in general, and first-level children are book chapters.
A gradient image is used as a background and shows how the book's sentiment score is changing from the first to the last chapter.
