This book cover shows excellent figure ground/negative space. The contours formed by the position of the fox serve as the shape of a boy, I'm assuming "Peter." This empty space also creates a wonderful focal point for the book title to nestle into.
It has a great tranquil, soft beauty. I love the simple black & white color scheme. I especially love how the only thing black are the tree branches,so with the white fill of the A & the white background, it's creating great negative space.
