DEN FEMTE SANNINGEN

Alternative book cover
for The Golden Notebook
by Doris Lessing.


A book that summed up is about the different roles and identities of a woman and about questioning what a free woman really is. The main character of the book, Anna, is a writer who writes about these issues and seperates the roles in different coloured notebooks.  


Inspired by old marbled book covers, I took the colours from these notebooks and made the pattern by using nail polish and shaving foam as an alternative marbling technique. By using those materials
I wanted to incorporate the questions about identity from the book into the cover.
