MERROW by Ananda Braxton-Smith

Jacket design for young-adult novel


As a very literary fantasy novel, MERROW needed a graphic yet illustrative jacket. By dividing the cover into a rugged landscape and a mermaid’s tail, my design hints at the main character’s allegiance to both land and sea. The near reflection of the title itself mimics her potential transformation into a “merrow” which she believes is happening to her as it did her mother.
