A Place Free Of Judgement

Book cover design competition

We’re pleased to announce that the winner of the A Place Free Of Judgement book cover competition is 18-year-old Ziho from Coventry. We really loved Ziho’s dynamic use of typography and it reminds us of early Faber and Faber typographical book covers.


Ziho’s design will be used on the cover of the book which features a new story by Tony White called Zombie’s Ate My Library, as well as a wider collection of library stories we have gathered over the course of the project. 

Runners up

There are two runners up for the competition – it was too tough to call!

Below is Sophie from Shrewsbury’s design featuring all of her own photography work. We really like her colour way and the lovely delicate cut-out figures of the design.
