THE BEES

Book cover design,
surface design

The Bee’s, by Laline Paull, is a fantasy novel about a dystopia set in a beehive, where one bee rebels against the totalitarian state. The dark dystopian side of the novel was my inspiration for the design.  I created symbolism with the crown, representing hierarchy, the glowing flower, representing hope and the honey comb crumbling off the crown, a metaphor for the crumbling of the totalitarian state within the hive.
