Girl, Woman, Other
Penguin Cover Design 2022
Girl, Woman, Other explores identity, race, womanhood, and what it is to be British through the lives of twelve very different, yet interconnected, people. The challenge was to encapsulate the essence of the book in an imaginative and instantly engaging way.
The design for the cover encapsulates Evaristo's strikingly vibrant style of writing. The bold graphic shapes make a strong statement and instantly engage the eye. The simple yet vivid colour palette enhances the aesthetic. The broken chain simultaneously refers to the fractured interconnectedness of the characters and to the novel's key theme of speaking out and breaking the silence.
