BOOK COVER DESIGN

My husband, James Tate Hill, published Academy Gothic with the Southeast Missouri State University Press when he won the 2014 Nilsen Prize for a First Novel, and I was flattered when the publisher asked me to design the cover for the book. As a book that focuses on academic satire, the headstone concept emphasizes the death of higher education as an institution. It also signifies the book's genre: murder-mystery.
