Unbowed

Unbowed

Gabriele Wilson, New York, New York, 2006

Description

I wanted this cover to reflect Wangari Maathai’s environmental work in Africa and emphasize that the lion’s share of it was done by African women. I related this concept to the illustrator who did a great job translating my sketch into the final jacket illustration.
