I’m delighted to reveal the cover design for an upcoming BenBella title, Beyond Mars and Venus. The design is reminiscent of the original Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus cover while incorporating new elements that reflect this follow-up book’s message (you can read more in-depth about the similarities and differences between the two books in my previous blog post on the topic).
Perhaps the most noticeable difference in this design is in its use of color. True to this book’s message of inclusiveness, the stereotypically gender-associated blue and pink colors are blended together in a gradient to purple, a clever visual representation of a more up-to-date approach to gender roles in relationships. The design was due in large part to our talented in-house Art Manager, Sarah Dombrowsky:
BenBella is incredibly proud to be publishing Beyond Mars and Venus. It is a book of significant cultural importance written by a trio of prolific experts, and we look forward to its release in June 2016.
