Book Cover for

"The Handmaid's Tale"

Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale" takes place in the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian society in which handmaids are assigned to bear children for elite men. For the image, I combined the handmaid's robe and bonnet with the image of an ultrasound, depicting the handmaid as a faceless womb for society.

The image was created using a variety of ink techniques on cold press watercolor paper, and the hand-lettered text was added on top using photoshop.
