Apple & Knife

by Intan Paramaditha

Winner of the Best Designed Literary Fiction Cover at the 2019 Australian Book Designers Association Awards

Apple & Knife is the Australian edition of Intan Paramaditha’s book, translated from the original Indonesian. Inspired by horror fiction, myths and fairy tales, Apple and Knife is an unsettling ride that swerves into the supernatural to explore the dangers and power of occupying a female body in today’s world.

The cover of Apple & Knife needed to be bold and slightly unsettling to express the uncomfortable themes of the stories in this collection. A detailed account of the development and photoshoot for the cover can be found at this link.
