TAMPA: Alissa Nutting



This book cover sums up the novel completely. It is simplistic yet extremely dramatic and is definitely eye catching. The novel follows a female pedophile working as a teacher as she has sexual relations with one of her teenage students.

Of course this is a subject that is awkward and uncomfortable, but I think the cover design for this book is very well fit. The button hole on the front is eye catching and of course holds obvious innuendo.

The tag line ‘Brave and beautifully written, a provocative look at a taboo subject’ is a good choice for the front cover. Alongside the cover image, the tag line leaves the reader extremely intrigued by the content of the novel. The cover image and the title are the main focus of the book as Alissa Nutting was not very-well known at the time of publication.
