Book cover artwork for Aisha Saeed's story about a young Pakistani girl who uses her smarts to bring down the feudal system. The cover needed to show the idea of Amal being held captive but also that her dream of a better life, of freedom, will come true. Her hands are held together like a prayer and the henna patterns and open skies come to life within her palms.
Amal Unbound is published by Penguin Random House and is now a New York Times bestseller.
