One of my all time favourite novels, there was no other book I could have chosen for the cover re-design case study. A story about enduring friendship and inescapable trauma, I sought to capture the fight between self-love and loathing. Is the grasped wrist out of ecstacy or injury?
To my complete amazement, Hanya Yanagihara saw the cover and sent her praise. Yes, not-so-subtle brag (I’m still in shock…).
