Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit Book Cover

Response: In the brief, Penguin talk about a ‘strong use of typography’ so I answered this by displaying the title on oranges. I first thought about putting each letter on an orange using my computer, but I decided it would be more effective to actually carve the letters onto the oranges themselves then photograph them. I wanted to display the oranges going mouldy to represent Jeanette breaking away from the society that she was part of, and her realisation that there are other ways of life. The society became tainted (and went mouldy) for Jeanette when she got on the wrong side of it by having her sexual relationships with Melanie and Mrs. Jewbury.
