Artist Statement

"I wanted to show through a simple symbol (the red star) one of the main ideas of the book-- how the working class is oppressed by an upper class. The tip of the star represents the upper class, and the fragmented red star (still recognizable), underground represents the working class. Made up of many colors and shapes, the various forms still combine to make the bottom of the star. Balancing the title on the tip is supposed to help the feeling of pressure below." - tracy cox

My name is Tracy Cox. I love books and often design covers for fun, so I was very excited to her about this project! (thanks BoingBoing) I live and work in San Francisco and am art director at Sierra Magazine. I like weird film and TV, basketball, and drawing.
