A Manual for Cleaning Women

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Trade Covers / 2016

A Manual for Cleaning Women was briefed to be conversational and nostalgic. The editor was keen to convey the underworld of launderettes and lovers with sense of warmth and lightness. With a foreword from Lydia Davis and Lorrie Moore as the competition, the cover had to be conceptual, literary, and represent one of the great female voices of our time.
