Hallelujah for 50ft Women

“Raving Beauties was born out of a deep sense of frustration with domesticity, naivete and a burning need for a creative outlet. It led to an enormous personal, political and professional learning curve. We’re still on it.”

After working with them on their website, Raving Beauties asked me to help create a cover to their important and challenging anthology of women’s poetry about their relationships with their bodies.

Working from Frances Viner’s excellent still image of her circus performer daughter Alex, I followed an intuitive direction with texture and type, synchronously and unknowingly mirroring some of the themes fought with in the book.

I am especially proud of the final result; the content is exceptional. You can buy a copy here.

“Mr Ford - honorary 50ft woman.”
