There’s Cake In My Future by Kim Gruenenfelder. In honor of National Women’s Day, I thought I’d pay homage to this delightful design. Don’t get me wrong—I think there’s more to a woman’s life than what the little dangling trinkets represent. The pale purple background of the cover sets a feminine tone that is not too overt. The woman’s hand and her bright, eye-catching pink nails do well in drawing viewers to an organic and life-size visual. The title typography is appropriately girly, but also tasteful. I must admit, I most enjoy the clever display of the silver trinkets dangling from the blue ribbons, symbolizing marriage, children, and ultimately hard work. Showing this hand reach so longingly for what is supposedly intended for a woman, as though it is just out of grasp, is a perfect setup for this chick lit about three women who aren’t content to take a bite out of society’s cake just yet.
