Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 5.42.02AM

We love the new cover look Carrie May has created for best selling author Katherine Rundell. Carrie worked with the design team at Faber and Faber to illustrate this beautiful cover for Rundell’s debut novel ‘The Girl Savage’, the tale of a young girl uprooted from her life in Zimbabwe, destined for boarding school in London. We love Carrie’s artwork, which captures Will’s wild adventures on her African farm.
