The Language of Fire by Stephanie Hemphill

Illustration, lettering

This cover is for a retelling of the story of Joan of Arc, re-interpreted through a young adult, feminist lens. And the whole thing is in verse! With an ornate detailed border, medieval imagery, flames, and blackletter, it's basically my dream brief.

Client: Harper Collins
