A Thousand Splendid Suns #1

Aaand finally, on to the last novel that I’m book cover-ing.  Again, sticking with the ‘isolated landscape’ concept, but as this book is very much about a touching relationship between two women in Afghanistan, I thought there should be a bit more relationship in this one. My main idea is to have the 2 main characters Mariam and Laila integrated within the dry mountainous landscape, showing how they are negatively trapped in their culture, but also how they are positively intrinsically bonded to each other. I wanted the text to be a bit bold and imposing as a contrast but I’m not sure about it. Also not sure about the plain white background:

And below is my more simple idea about a deserted desert town, I’m quite pleased with the look of the drawing but I don’t think it encapsulates my idea so well:

The top piece of art has more impact. I think the white is too quiet and not representative of the culture.
