Post­ed by Nat Bern­stein

Orphan Num­ber Eight author Kim Van Alke­made shared the cov­er for the nov­el­’s new large-print edi­tion last week, and it’s no won­der she’s excited:

The title’s orig­i­nal book cov­er is strik­ing as well, but this new art­work match­es the nov­el­’s inten­si­ty in its somber somber tones and ambigu­os­i­ty — is the girl look­ing out the win­dow yearn­ing to escape, or is she sim­ply watch­ing the out­side world from within?

It’s those lace bob­by socks that kill me.
