The Fault in Our Stars Audiobook Boxset Design

Two versions of the audiobook for John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars audiobook were released. The first was read by Kate Rudd and was released commercially by Brilliance Audio. The second was read by John Green himself and released as a deluxe edition box set by DFTBA Records. For the DFTBA Records box set I designed the layout for the outer box, the inner contents of the first edition, and the DVD menu and disc face.

The original book cover was designed by Rodrigo Corral, and the box set cover retains most of the original design with a few tweaks. The inner contents included six CDs, one DVD, a faux concert ticket for The Hectic Glow, a wristband, and four postcards. Later reprints also included stickers, pinback buttons, and other small merch items.

The box set was updated three times. Each edition saw a limited printing of 3,000 copies. The inner contents varied with each edition, for example, the first 3,000 print edition was the only one to include the DVD. While each edition included John’s unabridged reading across six CDs, the postcards, wristband color, and other small merch items changed.
