- Design Rationale
The author’s previous books have contained a wonderful illustrated branding which I wanted to continue. I wanted the cover design to evoke the characters fragility but also the complicated nature of family relationships and friendships. Alison Colpoys’ stunning illustration captured the author’s lyrical style, beautiful imagery and poetic voice. The intertwine of the delicate flowers with a burst of fluorescent pink does it justice and more.
