Book Cover for The Yellow Wallpaper

by Jill Chao-sheng Li

This is a redesigned book cover for Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper. The design focuses on the trapped protagonist and the disturbing torn-off yellow wallpaper that haunts her. The prison bar stands for her physical and mental restriction by her doctor husband. The hand-written style of the typeface represents the protagonist’s desire to write as a way of expressing herself.
