Astrid Blumer's Cover to Sally Partridge's New Comic-Rooted Novel, Mine

Young Adult novelist Sally Partridge introduces her new novel — and the leading characters. And, although a work of prose, its roots appear to be in comic books.

Guys, meet Fin and Kayla, the stars of my new novel, Mine. It's a roller coaster love story set in Cape Town & is packed with comic book & music references. The stunning cover was illustrated by Astrid Blumer & features tons of easter eggs from the novel. Release date 10 Feb 2018

Living and working in South Africa, Phillips is a three-time winner of the M.E.R Prize for Youth Fiction, was shortlisted for the prestigious Commonwealth Writer's Short Story Prize and was named one of the Mail & Guardian's 200 Young South Africans.

Astrid Blumer is an illustrator, also from Cape Town.
