The book cover for Our Share of the Night by Mariana Enriquez, with cover design and art by Donna Cheng. The all-caps, bold treatment of TT Ricks works perfectly with the illustration, the yellow nails mirroring the sharpness of the letter R’s. The one-sided serifs on the uppercase N, M, and U are also a nice detail.
We wanted a central image that was bold and haunting, both alluring and evocative of the novel’s dark themes. The hand is immediately captivating, and the flames dissolving into the abyss allude to a pivotal moment in the book. It all came together with a gothic font that complements the sharp claws, against a background of a fading dusk-blue sky.
