Zeros and Ones

Zeros and Ones

Doubleday, New York, New York, 1996

Description

Since the publisher was looking to sell this as a feminist Being Digital, I wanted the cover to convey a relationship between women and machines. This was a tricky balance to maintain, since it could easily come out looking either too feminine (compromising the technological aspects) or too masculine (if the emphasis was too heavy on the machines). To capture the sterile, mechanized feel, it has a machine-pressed look. This is brought out by the cover material used—a stainless steel type foil.
