This powerful novel about a harrowing ordeal that an 18th Century British woman endures while traveling to America with her husband and children needed a striking cover with a contemporary perspective. I chose to focus on the beauty and mystery of a protagonist undergoing a massive transformation during a sea voyage. The scene and clothing give the novel context, while the colors and typography are meant to give the book a modern sensibility. The cover illustration is mixed media (paint over collage).
