Beloved (v2)

Book jacket design for Toni Morrison's Pulitzer Price winning, Beloved. This version of the book jacket has a different audience, emphasizing the historical context of the story. The shape of the slave ship diagram overlaid with the book's title implies a tombstone. The name wraps from front to back, and is split so that the reader might complete the word as "below" before realizing the full title and makes reference to  the most debated chapter in the novel.
